A college skills assessment is an evaluative exercise conducted on students or even professors in order to test their suitability as per the guideline laid down by the college authorities. This assessment is conducted by measuring the student or the professor’s performance based on certain parameters. The parameters will of course differ with respect to the person being analyzed, but care should be taken to make the assessment an unbiased, scientific and comprehensive one.
