    to rank - to assess - to rate

    1) How do you rank this performance from 1 to 10?
    2) How do you assess this performance from 1 to 10?
    3) How do you rate this performance from 1 to 10?

    Do they have the same meaning or are these verbs used in different context?

    a) I hope to rank this new student correctly.
    b) I hope to assess this new student correctly.
    c) I hope to rate this new student correctly.

    I think of it this way:

    Rank - to divide into echelons of worth/value
    Rate - establish comparative worth/value.
    Assess - estimate individual worth/value.

    Waiting for an erudite comment,

    Wait for a teacher or a native speaker to enlarge on that.
