Is the best measurement that which determines how motivated a student is to learn more?

  1. I wonder if the desire to learn is the result of limitations or barriers one encounters while thinking through a problem that one is intrinsically motivated to solve.

    If so, the measured result (increased desire for learning) would be directly correlated to a teacher’s ability to facilitate a student’s authentic search meaning-making and strength-building.

    My default belief is that all of this can be measured. It goes against the current hegemonic system and perhaps on that account alone it’s worth the blind faith of a few.
