Measuring Learning

Establishing evidence-based principles for measuring learning.

The development of new techniques for accurately measuring learning, both qualitatively and quantitatively, is essential for studying the learning process and in the development and validation of practices that promote learning. While traditional measurement of learning tends to focus on evidence of competency in the domain being taught, the work of the SLRC focuses on the learning process itself and the learner characteristics and behaviours that determine success or present barriers to success in learning.  Research projects across the Centre are working on ways to measure learning as it happens, in a dynamic way both in the classroom and during learning in digital environments.
