What Is an Assessment Report?

An assessment report is a piece of writing which provides a thorough analysis of a specific topic or issue. Assessment reports are usually created to provide a complete summary of the assessment process. However they can also be used to identify areas of knowledge that are lacking or to identify training needs.

For example an assessment report might include a list of strengths and weaknesses that are discovered through the SWOT (strengths, threats, weaknesses, opportunities and weaknesses) analysis. This information can be used to determine what development actions are required for a given employee. The report of assessment can be shared with the hierarchy of the employee to aid in planning.

Another purpose for assessments reports is to evaluate the effectiveness of a program or project. Third parties, such as academic institutions or professional organizations are able to conduct an evaluation. The purpose of the evaluation is to assist stakeholders in making informed decisions and improve the effectiveness of a program or project.

A report on the evaluation will include an outline of the goals and descriptions of the project or program that is being evaluated. It also includes a brief overview of the findings and identifies barriers and challenges and offers recommendations. The report of evaluation should be unbiased and clearly communicate its conclusions and findings, using graphs and tables of data when appropriate. It should also mention any caveats or limitations that apply to the evaluation. This can be accomplished by making sure that the evaluation has been well-designed and executed, and by including the results of literature reviews. The report must be written in a clear and concise manner and organized logically, with subheadings and headings to make it easier to read.
