About CARI

No longer is assessment primarily for grading students on how well they have learnt what they have been taught. It is now about establishing and understanding where learners are in their learning at the time of assessment – in other words, establishing what learners know, understand and can do – in varying degrees of detail.

Better understandings of this kind provide better starting points for teaching and educational decision making, as well as better information for evaluating past learning progress.
