Workplace-based assessment (WPBA) appears to be a promising tool for more comprehensive assessment of the learners. Relevant literature in this direction was collated and analyzed for its relevance, salience, and merit. Many WPBA tools are being used by various educational institutions which spans across multiple domains and over the entire duration of the workplace learning. It caters to holistic assessment with structured measures, real-time feedback, and continuous professional development. It is being used more for formative assessment and has limited utility in summative assessment as on date. WPBA tools have promising prospect in bringing novelty, objectivity, and holistic approach in assessment.
