Assessment, Examples and Sample - eLearning Learning
"A new tool aims to help colleges catalog and present to their constituents the various steps they are undertaking to assess how (and how much) their students are learning. The "Transparency Framework" released this week by the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment is designed to bring together in one place the various plans, assessment activities and evidence that a particular college or university is using to gauge student learning."

The point of a diagnostic is not just to assess, but to do something with test results leading to improved learning. Thus, progress monitoring with individual students or an entire class makes sense. According to the National Center on Student Progress Monitoring (NCSPM), progress monitoring is "a scientifically based practice." The term is relatively new, and educators might be more familiar with Curriculum-Based Measurement and Curriculum-Based Assessment. An implementation involves determining a student’s current levels of performance and setting goals for learning that will take place over time. "The student’s academic performance is measured on a regular basis (weekly or monthly). Progress toward meeting the student’s goals is measured by comparing expected and actual rates of learning. Based on these measurements, teaching is adjusted as needed. Thus, the student’s progression of achievement is monitored and instructional techniques are adjusted to meet the individual students learning needs" (NCSPM, n.d., Common Questions section).

These types of assessments tend to assess student capabilities beyond even the subject matter about which they’re being tested. These are worth plenty of points, and they may determine entry to or removal from a program of learning.
