The Trouble With Measuring Understanding

The Trouble With Measuring Understanding | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

Assessing understanding might be the most complex thing a teacher ever does.

Unfortunately, professional development gives a lower level of attention to developing quality assessments, training that is rarely commensurate with this complexity. The challenge of assessment is no less than figuring out what a learner knows, and where he or she needs to go next.

In other words, what does a learner understand?
