Measuring Learning Will Be Key to Improving It in 2018

Ed Surge – Arjun Singh

“There is a popular quote attributed to management expert Peter Drucker: “What gets measured gets improved.” In education, the mantra is equally true. However, since I began working in edtech five years ago, I have been continuously surprised by how little emphasis there is on measuring changes and progress in individual learning, especially in higher education. This is particularly concerning given that it’s difficult to improve learning if we can’t measure it.

With better tooling and more emphasis, we’ll see significant progress in 2018.”(more)
