Setting Goals and Measuring Progress

  • Marilyn Lewis
Part of the How to Study book series (HS)


Some students measure their success in language learning by the marks they gain in tests through the years. Others try self-assessing in various ways. They might keep a record of the number of words they have learned or notice that they are now reading at a higher level, or they might try themselves out in communication with native speakers and judge their success that way. This section talks about the close connection between setting learning goals and measuring progress. To put it more simply, if you don’t know what your aim is you won’t know whether you have reached it.
