“The purpose of assessment in instruction is improvement."
"The purpose of assessing instruction for critical thinking is improving the teaching of discipline based thinking (Mathematics, Sociology, Science…) It is to improve students’ abilities to think their way through content, using disciplined skill in reasoning. The more particular we can be about what we want students to learn about critical thinking, the better can we devise instruction with that particular end in view.” – Richard Paul and Linda Elder
