The problem, as I see it, with assessment and metrics is that some things are easy to measure and some hard. Naturally you measure what you can, this is not a bad thing in itself, you can learn and improve by looking at this data.
The problem then comes when programs are rewarded or funded on the basis of measurable outcomes, this produces a bias towards onlt teaching the outcomes that are easily measurable. They are the lower level outcomes on Bloom's Taxonomy, drill and practice stuff, not higher order skills.
