Evaluation & Learning Objectives “Base Exam on course objective” Ideas About Learning and Teaching
There is an essential relationship between teaching and learning, and it could be argued that although it is possible to learn without being taught, it is not possible to teach without learning taking place. That is, if no learning has occurred, then teaching did not occur either. Telling might occurred, then not teaching
A process resulting in some modification, relatively permanent, of the way of thinking, feeling, doing, of the learner.
Is a continuous process Based upon criteria Cooperatively developed Concerned with measurement of the performance of learners, the effectiveness of teachers and the quality of the programme.
The Evaluation Process Provides a basis for value judgment that permit better educational decision- making.
