"Student assessment is a critical aspect of the teaching and learning process."

(Vanderbilt University, para. 1)

Cognitive Load

"Cognitive load theory aims to explain how the information processing load induced by learning tasks can affect students’ ability to process new information and to construct knowledge in long-term memory.


If cognitive load becomes too high, it hampers learning and transfer. Such demands include inadequate instructional methods to educate students about a subject as well as unnecessary distractions of the environment."
