Measuring Student Learning

An option for measuring student learning is to have students take the final exam during the first week in class, without grading them on it. At the end of the term give them that same exam again and compare the results. While letting students see their final exam makes some teachers nervous, most students won’t remember any of the questions, and if they do, it will simply help them focus in on what you feel is important for them to know.
