Assessing What We Value

Assessing What We Value | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

"In the June 2010 Harvard Business Review, Dan Ariely, a professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University, wrote a column entitled 'You Are What You Measure.' In it, he thoughtfully prods business leaders to consider the problematic correlation between the tools for measuring progress and actual organizational progress. 'Human beings,' writes Ariely, 'will adjust behavior based on the metrics they're held against. What you measure is what you'll get.' In short, assessments drive outcomes, but these outcomes may not be optimal in either the short or long run. Teachers and schools assess what they value in the learning experience. There is a growing awareness in independent and public schools, however, that the skills that have been — and, in some cases, are still being — assessed are not the skills that will optimize our students' ability to be successful in the 21st-century global economy." | by William Taylor
