AFL in classroom promotes productive and lifelong learning for students and develops an active relation between teacher and student. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the teacher concepts’ about strategies of AFL and its application in the classroom. Using the quantitative paradigm, the present study is descriptive, and survey design has been followed to carry out the research. 40 teachers of Education were selected from government colleges of Karachi using simple random sample technique. Data collection was done by using a closed-ended questionnaire, which was comprised of three parts i.e., Knowledge of assessment and strategies of AFL, practices of AFL, and application of AFL strategies in the classroom. Research findings revealed that most of government college teachers have little awareness of concept AFL and its strategies as a result the ratio of implementation of AFL in the classroom is low due to lack of time and resources, irregularity of students, and the large classes. Organizing workshops and short courses of AFL may help teachers to enhance their teaching competency to implement AFL strategies effectively in the classroom.
