Yet without assessment, how do we know what (if anything) they are learning? How can we know which students are understanding what God wants them to know and which students have no idea what God wants for them and from them? How will we know if we need to tweak or change our curriculum or other aspects of our ministry?
The truth is without assessment, everyone is making decisions based on guesses. Guesses which may or may not be anywhere close to accurate. We don’t need to have standardized tests like they do in schools. There are actually fun ways to assess students. You can get the information you need about students learning and they can review and anchor important information and principles.
