Abstract

Learning gain is a potentially valuable lens on student development. Its importance was highlighted by discussions framing the teaching excellence framework (TEF), which considered the ‘distance travelled’ by a learner as a potential metric. Learning gain in England is at its early stages whilst the United States have had a much more established measurement of learning gain culture. This paper examines the already existing measures being used within the US including the three standardised measures of the Voluntary System of Accountability, for example the Collegiate Learning Assessment, and one self-report measure. A review of these measures illuminates key lessons from existing practice in the US.
