Learn English – the difference between “assess” and “evaluate”?


What is the difference between assess and evaluate?

Best Answer

To me, an assessment is concrete: the gold is .999 fine, the car is worth $4500, the patient is dead. (It's connected with an assay or an appraisal.)

An evaluation is much more subjective: this plan is risky but worthwhile, the chili is bland, that chick is hot.
