Audit Vs Assessment

Audit Vs Assessment

S.No Audit Assessment
1 To verify the conformance of an entity to a given standard. It consists in gathering evidence of conformance or nonconformance. Evaluates the efficiency and/or effectiveness of an entity and results in a measure of its performance with regard to the scope of the assessment.
2 Verification and inspection are synonyms of audit. Appraisal and evaluation are synonyms of assessment.
3 An audit might explicitly point at specific people or groups of people as the cause for noncompliance (attribution). An assessment does not evaluate individuals (non-attribution). Of course, the result of an assessment might still be used to infer responsibility for failure or low scores
4 Example of audit: Verify all the practices established in the organization is followed or not. Example of assessment: Evaluate the CMMI level of an entity.
5 An audit results in a success or a failure An assessment usually provides a score that does not express success or failure
