Can assessments be used to motivate students?

Can assessments be used to motivate students?

I find that progressive assessments, assessing in small bit-size, makes students feel easier towards attempting assessments with a positive attitude.

However, students who in the first place is there due to other reasons, could not be enticed by such progressive assessments.

Any suggestions on how this groups of students with other motives, can be motivated?

With regards.

Continual progressive assessment is fine for most, but some of the more able students will find it boring and some of the less academic may find it 'unreal'. A 'proper' project is often a motivator - where they can get stuck into a real problem without a straight-line solution.

Assesment can be designed in three groups-- Easy, Moderate and Hard. The questions should be designed like that. Obviously the number of questions in each group should depend on the type of students in that batch. An all purpose solution is not possible, I mean it should vary from batch to bach. Some hands on case study may be given. Every one will solve it according to their merit level.So a better student will analyze it from a different and better angle than an ordinary one.
