Evaluation

There was a sprited discussion last week in my Teaching, Learning & Technology class centered on evaluation and assessment.  The first problem centered on who is really evaluated – the teacher or the student?  Aren’t student learning evaluations actually an assessment of a teachers’ abilty to teach?  Do we want to evaluate a deeper level on knowledge where students can apply a “web of learning” and use a metacognitive approach, thus helping students to control their own learning?  Doing so invites bias in evaluation.  It is far easier to evaluate understanding of simple rules and concepts.  Suffice it to say that no firm conclusions were reached.
