The assessment should be formative in order to create motivation. It has to be a positive incentive. Evaluate must be a recognition of progress.
The assessment should be contextualised, natural and on a daily basis. it's not necessary to prepare specific instruments to evaluate. Teacher can use routines or the usual procedures to evaluate.(NO TESTS)

Teacher chooses 3/4 students per class and concentrates himself in those students.

Besides this checklist made by the teacher, students should also do their self evaluation.
