At MVTTC we understand that assessment plays a major role in how trainees learn, how they are motivated to learn, and how teachers teach. We further understand that the most important part of the assessment is the interpretation and use of the information that is gleaned for its intended purpose.

Assessment at MVTTC is conducted formative (i.e. continuously) and summatively (i.e. final validation assessment) as per criteria and schedules set by relevant examination bodies. Additionally, students are assessed through teaching practice, projects, industrial attachment/practice and research work.
