'Curriculum' can mean many things: syllabuses, curriculum documents, policies, plans for teaching by faculties and individual teachers, sets of materials and resources used as the basis for developing learning experiences for learners as well as the learning experiences themselves. In addition curriculum as process includes all of the thinking, talking and interacting between individuals and groups that are necessary to arrive at decisions that are recorded in plans and documents. Evaluation and assessment are often misunderstood concepts. Cultural, social and political influences drive decisions about who, what and how will be evaluated. Evaluation and assessment are often conflated with large scale testing regimes because they can lead to easily quantifiable results. A broader and more accurate understanding of these terms is important for all educators.
