Inevitability of Assessment and Feedback Strategies in the Teaching- Learning Continuum By Jasmine. J


Teaching-learning process never completes without assessments and feedback. The assessment provided by the instructor or faculty, or even peers should enable the learners to progress in all spheres of learning. Feedback given must pave the way for growth and not disruption. The role of assessment and feedback in Teaching- Learning continuum is very vital, as these are the attributes that reveal the quality of the end product (learning outcomes). The facilitators and the learners must be diligently trained in this aspect to view the feedback and the results of the assessment as part of a broader vision. Mindset is another keyword that operates more when the assessment and feedback processes are implemented. Mindset reflects whether the receiver or the learner have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. People with a growth mindset strive hard to accept feedback in an optimistic way. On the other hand, people with fixed mindsets try all possible ways to make excuses and try to revolve around their comfort zone, thereby trying to escape from challenges. Research reveals that 40% of the learners (youth and adults) have a fixed mindset. In such a scenario, it is very crucial that all our teaching fraternity and the prospective teachers be tuned into all types of assessments that will enhance progress among the GenZ learners at ease. Performance based assessments, sociometric techniques, digital assessments, alternate assessments, etc. can be implemented instead of boring and stressful assessments. Constructive assessments and receptive feedback have to be meticulously planned for Gen Z learners.
