Assessment of teaching and learning


core definition

Assessment of teaching and learning is the process of evaluating the quality and appropriateness of the learning process, including teacher performance and pedagogic approach.


explanatory context

Bewertung von Lehre und Lernen: Der Prozess der Bewertung der Qualität und Eignung des Lernprozesses, einschließlich der Lehrerleistung und des pädagogischen Ansatzes.


Vlăsceanu et al. (2004) define student evaluation of teachers a follows:

The process of using student inputs concerning the general activity and attitude of teachers. These observations allow the overall assessors to determine the degree of conformability between student expectations and the actual teaching approaches of teachers. Student evaluations are expected to offer insights regarding the attitude in class of a teacher.
