Commentary by Stephen Downes

"The aim of education is to develop the student." So said Kohlberg and Mayer in 1972, and this marks the point of departure for this resource on assessment methods. It is the first in a series intended to address the assessment of digital literacies. This module outlines the work of Vygotsky, Glaser, and Rasch. "The idea of criterion - or standards - referenced assessment, reported in the form of a progression of emerging skills, is designed to assist teachers target and differentiate instruction to meet the learning needs of all students." Good review material, well worth a look. Also, see their LinkedIn group and Twitter feed.
