Defining Assessment

Assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning. It involves:
  • making our expectations explicit and public
  • setting appropriate criteria and high standards for quality learning
  • systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well the students’ performance matches the expectations and standards
  • using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve performance
