Over the last few decades, there have been waves of assessment reform around the world. In many countries, this reform is embarked on with a strong emphasis on an Assessment for Learning agenda which is closely related to the social constructivist perspective on learning and assessment.

1. What is learning and assessment in the social constructivism perspective?
2. How is social constructivist learning measured in current school practice?
3. How might it be measured in context?
4. What are the controversy and the global relevance of it?
5. What is our recommendation about employing the approach of social constructivism assessment to enhance teaching and learning?
