How do you assess learning, and what are the indicators of students' learning?


First, there is no perfect way to measure or assess learning, but assessments are used to give indicators of where learning is going. It's because it is very challenging for assessments to focus on all skills, such as social, emotional, mental, or even psychological. Second, the indicators obtained in assessment depend on the type of questions teachers ask when preparing their assessments. For example, we can ask questions that are mainly based on what many students know about a certain topic, but if we want to elicit information about how they learn, we need to tailor questions to lead students to delve into the application of this knowledge. The takeaway here is the teacher is the one who decides which data he/she wants to collect, and based on that data, they can design their questions.
