The promise of technology for education is that it can enable personalisation of learning. By that I mean that it will allow sequences of learning to be recommended for individual learners and that during the learning, a student's progress will be monitored and evaluated so that assistance can be given at the right time. At the end of the learning sequence, the student and her teacher will receive reports of what she has learned, with recommendations for next steps.

BUT, none of this is possible without assessment of learning both at the macro level (courses and sequences of instruction) combined with micro level assessments of what the student knows and can do right now (to allow for tutoring).

In this blog I want to explore the barriers and opportunities in this space.
