Students of the first-year nursing program were recently experienced continuous and formative assessment through their training program. This is to improve the achievement of the students and the Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs). Therefore, the aim of the current study was to investigate the relationship between monitoring students’ performance through continuous and formative assessments, student, and CLOs achievements. The study revealed a significant increase in the students’ marks in all assessment methods after the mid-semester exams. In addition, the CLOs achievement is increased when the students got feedback.
