Term Definition
alignment

in education this is the extent to which the aims assessment and teaching approaches of a course of study all fit together. Constructive alignment means that teaching methods and the assessment system share common principles. For example a course which aimed to produce learners capable of persuading others would need to be taught in a certain way and assessed appropriately: multiple-choice written test would not be in alignment in this case.
