Learning Evaluation, Step 2: Define Metrics

Watershed

Here, we'll discuss the second step in the learning evaluation process—identifying the success metrics most appropriate to the organization. With the program goals aligned, now it's time to divide them into individual evaluation metrics to show the program's success and monitor progress toward the program's goal. How do I select success metrics? When choosing success metrics, we recommend a collection of metrics that cover as many of the five areas below.

Connected pedagogy: Smart technology

Learning with 'e's

A variety of new approaches to pedagogy have been introduced as a result of our hyperconnected society (of which more in a future blog post). The fact that any of us can access knowledge, expertise and resources so we can learn at any time and in virtually any place, means that the way we see pedagogy must change. The metrics speak for themselves. How many other new smart and connected technologies will emerge in the coming years to challenge our notion of pedagogy?

Pedagogy is more important than technology. Measuring learning is a much harder task — requiring first the identification of what metrics are most appropriate — but it is the only way we will be able to determine the true effectiveness of different learning environments, which will become even more important as new digital tools and technologies emerge.

The numbers game

Learning with 'e's

But it is a vitally important part of pedagogy. Assessment of learning focuses largely on the student''s work and offers metrics - awarding a grade with a numerical value - that reflect how the work is measured against specific criteria. Some would argue that giving grades reflects a product-based pedaogogy, while offering feedback supports a process-based pedagogy. When you mark a student''s work, do you give them a grade or do you offer them advice? Both, do I hear you say?

Governments are more interested in ensuring that their statistics and metrics continue to rise, than they are about children's learning.

Rather, it is the persistent assumption that 'grading' is paramount for the measurement of student understanding, and that we should focus the power of AI to support this kind of pedagogy. Computers are excellent at storing and processing vast arrays of metrics and performing complex calculations very quickly, but when it comes to providing empathetic, intuitive and personalised feedback to students, teachers will come out on top every time.

Much has been written recently about personalised learning. Many educators agree that one size does not fit all and that student centred learning is what we should all aspire to.

I measured the metrics and analyzed the data and kept my eye on the results that student’s were producing. I liked teaching and I found it came natural to me, but I didn’t know much about pedagogies. I wrote my first ebook about 10 years ago. However, I wanted more interactive elements so I transformed my ebook into an online course, expanded my content, offered podcasts, video tutorials, a private members only area and much more.
