Learning outcomes

The assessment is a strategic issue compared to the understanding of what is happening in the school system at all levels; also particularly important with respect to educational processes and institutional innovation. It therefore constitutes a core of knowledge and skills particularly significant for professional development.
Compared to everything I believe is necessary to take a perspective that considers the education service in the complexity of its components as a horizon of reflection and action, overcoming a vision of evaluation as a exclusive measure of learning.
The promotion of a culture of evaluation requires, in addition to awareness of own experiences and the evaluation required knowledge of the issues involved, the development of a reflective attitude about the different practices act and listen to the formative values compared to persons involved and those innovative compared to organizational processes.
