Join us for a presentation from education experts Paul Zachos and William Doane on their new book Knowing the Learner.

Every student, teacher, parent, educational policymaker,​ ​and institution​ ​deserves a way to know whether students​ ​are learning what is being taught.​ ​Educational assessment and evaluation are needed to create and apply this ​knowledge productively. ​​Knowing the Learner is directed​ ​to everyone who wishes​ ​to understand what truly​ educational assessment and evaluation are (as well as​ ​what they are not). But to understand these, it is first​ ​necessary to understand​ ​the basic nature of educational activities. The book shows how to develop this​ understanding and how, for the field of education to move forward, teachers must​ ​become increasingly skilled in the practice of assessment and evaluation. Although Knowing the Learner delves into technical subjects, they are always presented in​ ​a way that requires no technical knowledge. For all of these reasons, Knowing​ ​the Learner can be of value to everyone who cares about improving education​ ​and particularly to those who are actively engaged in educational practice, policy,​ ​and decision-making. Readers may be surprised to discover that a new approach​ ​to assessment and evaluation is precisely what is needed, not only to make​ ​educational practice more effective but also to make it more humane.​
