Abstract: Continuous assessment in education is a progressive teaching and learning approach which promotes holistic learning. It eliminates focus on examinations which tempts learners to compete for grades rather than self-improvement. More teachers are simultaneously forced to promote rote learning or banking approach to achieve good grades. Continuous assessment is a drive towards reading to learn, writing notes, and research skills and strengthens learners’ educational identity. Importantly, if the assessment is research-based, there is continuous teaching, learner engagement, a critical source of academic and intellectual growth. Besides teachers’ guidance, students share ideas among themselves and this is a fertile ground for academic development. Continuous assessment in education is being hastily implemented in Zimbabwean Primary and Secondary schools without thorough groundwork having been done and it is giving birth to academic mercenaries. This paper is informed by the Keep Learning on Track (KLT) theory of action whose focus is to train teachers on formative assessment. From the teachers’ affirmations, KLT has the power to improve student learning through authentic formative assessment. Again, teachers acknowledged that formative assessment is important in improving teaching and learning. This is a qualitative research with data generated from interviews with 30 teachers. Data was organised, thematised, discussed and conclusions reached.
