Both assessment and audit are ultimately aimed at studying processes for their improvement but there are distinct differences.
An assessment helps to collect and analyze information. Assessments also present recommendations for decision-making.
On the other hand, an audit examines if the results of quality activities are in compliance with planned arrangements or stated processes. Audits also check if the planned arrangements are effective enough to meet the objectives that they were set for.
