Assessment typically involves:
- identifying clear, valid, and appropriate student learning outcomes
- collecting evidence to demonstrate the outcomes have been achieved
- providing the students with clear expectations
- gathering information to improve teaching and learning in the unit
Assessment can be used as a tool for accountability (such as grades and reports) or as an ongoing process for learning.
