    Assessment

    Assessment is the process of gathering information that accurately reflects how well a learner is meeting the curriculum expectations. The primary purpose of assessment and evaluation is to facilitate continuous learner improvement and learning. Information gathered through assessment helps educators determine learners’ strengths and weaknesses and adapt instructional approaches accordingly.

    Educators can better facilitate learning and growth by:

    • clearly defining the learning goals
    • scaffolding learning experiences
    • providing varied opportunities for practice
    • giving meaningful feedback
