9 Principles of Good Practice in Assessing Student Learning
The assessment of student learning begins with educational values.
Assessment is most effective when it reflects an understanding of learning as multidimensional, integrated, and revealed in performance over time.
3. Clear Purposes
Assessment works best when the programs it seeks to improve have clear, explicitly stated purposes.
4. Outcomes and Experiences
Assessment requires attention to outcomes but also and equally to the experiences that lead to those outcomes.
Assessment works best when it is ongoing not episodic.
