There are as many different definitions of learning as there are educators. Most, however, converge on the idea that human learning involves an enduring change in one's knowledge, skills, or beliefs that occurs through experience. While social interactions and contexts are important mediators of learning, this enduring change is an individual process that occurs within the mind of the learner, and thus is not visible to others. So, how do we know that students are learning? How do we what they have learned, or when they have learned it?
