This article focuses on the suggestion to include pupil evaluation as part of the curriculum. The full effectiveness of pupil evaluation techniques and instruments is lost when teacher fail to recognize the several purposes which they may serve. The emphasis for all was individual and group control of behavior, or self-discipline rather than externally imposed discipline. These are only a few examples of how evaluation instruments and technology can be made an integral part of the curriculum. Curriculum planners should give more attention to building evaluation activities into units and in some cases developing units around them. Teachers should give more attention to their motivation value and to more effective use of the results.
