Abstract: Social scientists, instructors and institutions use classroom-learning assessment to measure attitudes, behaviors, emotions and personalities. Whatever the focus and format, the basic purpose of classroom assessment is to determine what learners want and educators need to improve learning. This study explored the conflicting notion that the most dominant form of instruction in higher education is pedagogy, referred to as traditional or teacher-directed study. Andragogy is the competing idea in terms of instructing adult learners and recently has gathered momentum. This study argued that the concept of assessment in radio/television/film production courses in higher education depends on reliability and validity. For an assessment to be accurate and balance, they must be free of bias and distortion, provide barrier-free environments to both non-traditional and traditional learner.
