“Learning is not linear, and meaningful learning resists being quantified. Our assessment approaches should create space for learning not arbitrarily delimit it. How, for example, can we ‘test’ whether a student has had an epiphany? What standardized mechanism can account for a student learning experience we (and they) couldn’t have anticipated? . . . These kinds of questions call for a pedagogy that is less algorithmic and more human, more subjective, more compassionate.”
