Teachers who spend time actually thinking through assignments that align with the learning outcomes of a course are the most effective at assessing the learning that has taken place.

Embodied Cognition is a cognitive science in which the mind, body, and the environment interact, enabling learners to acquire or construct new knowledge (Cowart, 2005). This triad of influences affords learning in goal-directed, real time environments that engages the senses, perceptions, and prior experiences (Kerka, 2002).

Embodied cognition is related to Situated Cognition/Learning Theory and constructivism. It also has sub-fields in Artificial Intelligence, Psychology, Neuroscience and Social Science.
