Assessing students to take their learning to the next level…

Assessing students’ understanding is vital to the learning process to ensure they are truly grasping the content and understand the material. Many studies have shown that using regular low-stakes assessments, like surveys and quizzes, can help boost students’ learning outcomes, improve engagement, and identify learning gaps.

The value of gauging student comprehension allows teachers to not only gain insight into areas of improvement, but frequent assessments can also help teachers:

  • evaluate the efficacy of the content or lesson to help students achieve their desired outcome.
  • gain insight into the student’s current comprehension level to identify areas of improvement – for both students and teachers.
  • determine how to best support students learning needs at their level.
