Assessment for Learning

Almost all learning can be assessed, but some of the most valuable kinds of learning are difficult to quantify. Standardized tests are just one method of assessing student learning. When coupled with various types of formative, summative, performance-oriented and authentic context review opportunities, assessment can become a powerful tool ‘for learning’ and not merely as a measure ‘of learning’. Comprehensive, authentic assessment can be a learning experience in itself, and records not just what students have learnt, but how they think and problem-solve.
