The current trend in education is to move away from traditional exams and instead have continuous assignments over the school year. What do you think of this trend?

Nowadays continuous evaluation throughout the year is being preferred over the conventional exam system.

last
day.

To conclude, the year-round evaluation using assignments, activities and so on is beneficial and promote the understanding of the subject rather just theoretical concepts. It makes sure the students for losing marks in case of any mishappenings.
