About the “A” Word


What exactly is academic assessment, and why are we all spending so much time and effort wrestling with it?

In a nutshell: Assessment is a continual and intentional process that seeks to answer important ongoing questions like:

1. What do we want our students to learn?

2. How will we know when they have learned it?

3. How can we improve our teaching and their learning?

The materials in this eFolio are all directly related to one of those three questions.
