    Great question, Chris! I’ve had some really good discussions with educators who believe that one should happen before the other. Chicken or the egg situation. However, in a perfect world, they’d both be shifting together in my opinion. It’s hard to do one of them well while the other is lagging behind in approach/practice. Since assessment and evaluation should inform our instruction, it might make sense to start there and think “how do I get them here? What learning experiences should we give them to achieve these learning goals?”
