Difference between Assess and Evaluate questions for 20m Edexcel A Level Psychology?

Hi guys!! Just wanna know if anyone knows the difference between the question demands of an Assess vs Evaluate question in Edexcel A-Level Psychology ? Textbook isn't very clear about any distinctions...
both are basically the exact same thing just AO1 + AO3

discuss on the other hand is given when theres a scenario, so if u get a 8 marker discuss = AO1 + AO2 ONLY

pretty much, yes! both include AO1/AO3, but the only difference between eval/assess is that assess is moreso weighing up how well the thing does what it's meant to so if the question was about antipsychotics and the command word was assess, youd be using AO1/AO3 and deciding how well they alleviate symptoms of schizophrenia.
