[Excerpt] “Experts on learning tell us that the most effective learning environments are "assessment centered." In those environments, students know what they are expected to learn, understand the criteria used to evaluate their performance, have multiple and varied opportunities to practice meeting performance criteria, and receive feedback on meeting those criteria. They also learn how to use the feedback to improve their learning.”
