Rationale

Assessment

I chose Assessment because I’m in the process of developing a learning department within the organization in which I’m employed. As part of the development work, I have to decide if the courses are to be scored (must the student pass a course before progressing to the next?) and if so, which courses?

I think my (now) broader understanding of assessment will help me to become a better instructor because I can see that assessment isn’t only used as a means of aiding the student to understand how he/she is doing, but can be used to determine if the lesson itself is well structured and understood by the student.
