Assessing Learning in a Learning Society.
Hanford, George H.
Set in the context of shifting economic and social demands, the educational scene during the last part of the 20th century is discussed. Increasing numbers of people of all ages will be involved in different kinds of learning for varying purposes. Some will want to learn for personal satisfaction and improvement, others will need to learn to meet changes in technology and job requirements. Many learners will want and seek appraisal and assessment of their achievement. To this end, present instruments and procedures may need to be modified and improved. Learning opportunities will continue to expand and diversify, enabling prospective students to continue their education in schools, colleges and universities, on the job, at learning centers, or at home via correspondence, television, newspapers, and satellites.
