Read the article entitled, "Assessment in Work‐Based Learning: Investigating a Pedagogical Approach to Enhance Student Learning." (see attached) According to Brodie and Irving (2007):

As teachers [...], we need to ensure that students will know:

- What learning is (learning implies change)—learning theory;
- How to do it best (the style, approach, fitness for purpose)—learning theory;
- When they have learned (description of and reflection about the learning)—critical reflection;
- What their learning is informed by (its validity; how it stands up to scrutiny against outside evidence)—critical reflection;
- What they need to learn (future learning)—critical reflection;
- What they have learned, know more about, become more able at doing (analysis and evaluation of the learning)—capability (p.14).

Explain how assessment can be used for both individual learner mastery and continuous quality improvement of the instruction. Offer your thoughts on how critical reflection is essential in the assessment process not only for the educator, but for learners as well. Be sure to support your assertions with references from the reading.

Assessment and Critical Reflection

Brodie and Irving (2007) stated that as educators, regardless of the type of learning setting, ''we need to ensure that students will know: what learning is, how to do it best, when they have learnt, what their learning is informed by, what they need to learn, what they have learnt, know more about, become more able at doing.

Reflect back on your experience throughout your course of learning in selecting assessment methods and designing assessment tools to evaluate learning, and also explain how assessment can be used for both individual learner mastery and continuous quality improvement of the instruction. Give some thoughts on how critical reflection is essential in the assessment process not only for the educator, but for learners as well.
