To demonstrate this principle, the teacher must understand that the grade is not the goal, but learning is.  The teacher must accurately check on student readiness, progress, and abilities in order to teach topics that are relevant, and to the student's current abilities.  They must focus their assessments on their curriculum and standards and focus these assessments on helping the students to achieve.  The teacher must explain the purpose of assessments and teach students the reason they are implemented in the classroom.  In addition, a variety of assessments must be administered in all classrooms by the teacher to accurately predict whether learning has taken place.  To do this, the teacher must be knowledgeable of different forms of assessment and know when to implement the appropriate ones.  To demonstrate this principle, the teacher must use these different strategies to assess every student in the classroom to get a better picture of what was learned, what needs improvement, and what needs to be learned.
