Learning occurs when students see things in new ways. It is a process that requires close attention to how students develop understandings as they make meaning of the content. In light of this, it is critical that teachers develop a reflective assessment process in which they analyze classroom data, provide feedback to reduce the gap between where a student is and where s/he should be, and engage the learner in acts of self-evaluation so that s/he knows what to do next. A critical factor to this feedback loop is knowing how and when to provide feedback, as well as helping students to be open to feedback so they can use it to move forward and improve.
