dc.description.abstractThis paper presents initial findings from on-going research on the development of assessments that measure how students are prepared for future learning in fast changing environments. Issues of assessment are extremely important for measuring the quality of learning and teaching. Typical assessments tend to tell us what students have learned in the past but not necessarily how prepared they are to learn in the future. With this problem in mind, we have begun research on how students are able to use resources (technology-based access to relevant information, social networks, simulations) in order to learn to solve problems. Our goal is to provide more valid measures of students' existing strengths as well as skills and knowledge that they need to learn. Our assessments are designed to be both formative and summative.en_US
