Measurement and Assessment

Assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving. It involves making expectations explicit and public; setting appropriate criteria and high standards; systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches those expectations and standards; and using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve. This requires identifying common indicators to be measured on an ongoing basis, and being aware of addressing inherent biases in the way we collect, measure and interpret data.
