That’s an interesting question Joanne. I think the terms can be used interchangeably in some instances or when speaking in generalities. I also think in terms of fitness, assessment is the first step or the diagnostic portion, if you will. We’re assessing or determining a client’s fitness level based on scientific methods and criteria. We use assessment results to set realistic goals so we can make an evaluation of progress made at points in the future, or to give an overall analysis of progress from our initial point.
What is your opinion?
