The quest to turn on the taps in constructive assessment

In a globally interdependent world, educators are charged with preparing learners for this complex, ,interactive world. Many research efforts stress that radical improvement regarding abilities is necessary because a critical shortfall of particular skills and abilities in learners leaving school, whichis a significant constrained in economic growth. This educational challenge requires educators to develop learners with critical, creative and conceptual minds, but still to teach the required content. Therefore developing the individual learner’,s ability to construct his or her own meaning for newconcepts is a prerequisite for the classroom. So is the development of the learner’,s ability to solve increasingly complex problems in the learning area as well as in daily life. This revivifies the question of how to plan, structure and assess in order to accommodate these requirements while enhancing learner abilities and achievement.
