Assessment: Are You Doing It?

The debate over assessment is made up of varied opinions and is nothing new. Evidence shows assessment of educational achievement was used by Sui Emperors in China as early as 589 CE. More current however (1900-1933), is the origin of standardized testing in the United States. The next phase (1933-1947) of assessment in the United states saw the assessments designed for non-cognitive areas beyond content knowledge. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) was born during this time period. Then between 1948-1978, after WWII ended, there was an increase in college applications. The influx of prospective college students lead to perceived need for admission criteria and the resulting evolution of test providers, which lead to the enormous growth of the SAT and ACT. Finally, the current era (1979-Present Day) is steeped in accountability which provides for opportunity to improve the effectiveness of learning & teaching in higher education.
