    Question Assess vs Appraise vs Evaluate

    Hi!

    I've sometimes come across phrases like these:

    ... assess and evaluate a student.

    ... assess and appraise him.

    Looking them up in the dictionary I realize they all mean nearly the same. However, many times they are used together as if there is a slightly difference between them.

    Anyone could explain this to me, please?

    Thanks!!

    Re: Assess vs Appraise vs Evaluate

    ... assess and evaluate a student.

    ... assess and appraise him.

    I agree they are all nearly the same. However, in this context I think they mean "to test and grade"
