The practice of assessment underscores a question that is already a fundamental condition of teaching and learning at Georgetown: How do we know our students are learning in the ways we hope and expect? Assessment provides a framework that helps us discover methods for improving the ways we articulate the goals we set for our students and ourselves, as well as the transparent ways we discover and share knowledge about how well we’re meeting these goals. The process grows out of our values and our commitment to teaching and learning, and we are guided by questions we personally and professionally deem important. Assessment can make our teaching come alive for both our students and ourselves.
