Research v. Assessment


Research uses experimental protocol (control groups, controls for variables), investigates or provides evidence towards a theory or hypothesis, and can be applied broadly to all audiences, regardless of institution. 


Assessment takes a snapshot of your target audience at a given moment in time, informs practice, and does NOT see to generalize to all students.


Both research and assessment involve asking the right questions, collecting data, analyzing results, using said results to provide evidence and/or make decisions, and use qualitative and quantitative data.
