TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT FOCUSED ON LEARNING IN THE CONTEXT OF NEW CURRICULUM CONCEPTS
Keywords:education system; educational (education) process; teaching; learning; and assessing;instrumental competencies.
This article answers where the fundamental needs of the educational reform in general and the curriculum reform, in particular. It belongs to the series of papers focused on the core concepts of the educational process while, all over the world, this process seems to be in an ongoing and never predictable reform, with common and differentiated aspects.
This time, the paper approaches the teaching and evaluation as the two acts of the formal educational process that must be approached with a serious and effective focus on the learning process of the students.
Firstly the paper presents the necessary distinctions among terms like educational process with its wide meaning and the formal educational process; the formal educational process and educational system. Then, the three actions of the formal educational process are analyzed: teaching, assessing and learning. The core aim is to argue why it is strongly necessary to focus both the teaching and the assessment actions on learning. This necessity is connected to future graduates' profiles. They will be put into the difficult situation to cope with a â€floodâ€ of information, received on an increasing number of communication channels, while more and more complex tasks coming from the real life are to be solved rapidly and efficiently.
