Continuous evaluation helps in regular assessment to the extent and degree of students progress (ability and achievement with reference to specific scholastic and non-scholastic areas).

Continuous evaluation serves to diagnose weakness and permit the teacher to ascertain an individual pupil’s strengths and weakness and his needs. It provides immediate feedback to the teacher, who can then decide whether a particular unit or concept needs re-teaching into the whole class or whether a few individuals are in need of remedial instruction.

It helps the teacher to organize effective teaching strategies,

Mainly times, because of some personal reasons, family problems or adjustment problems, the children start neglecting their studies, resulting in a sudden fall in their achievement.
If the teacher, child and parents do not come to know about this sudden fall in the achievement and the neglect of studies by the child continues for a longer period then it will result in poor achievement and a permanent deficiency in learning for the child.
The continuous evaluation helps in bringing awareness of the achievement to the child, teachers and parents from time-to-time. They can look into the probable cause of the fall in achievement, if any, and may take remedial measures in time, to help the child overcome it at their own level.

By Continuous evaluation, children can know their strength and weakness. It provides the child a realistic self-picture of how he and she studies. It can motivate children to develop good study habits, to correct errors, and to direct their activities towards the achievement of desired goals. It helps an individual to determine the areas of instruction in which more emphasis is required.

Continuous and comprehensive evaluation ascertains areas of aptitude and interest. It helps in identifying changes in attitude, character and value pattern.

It helps in making decisions for the future, regarding choice of subjects, courses and careers.

It provides information/report on the progress of students in scholastic and non-scholastic areas and thus help in predicting the future successes of the learner.
