Stan messes about in test (10)


I believe the answer is:


'test' is the definition.
(an assessment is a test or examination)

'stan messes about' is the wordplay.
'about' indicates anagramming the letters.
'stanmesses' anagrammed gives 'ASSESSMENT'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for assessment that I've seen before include "rating" , "Process of valuation" , "Opinion" , "test" , "Survey" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
