    Assessment of student learning in PACE is a difficult and complex endeavor if it is to be done well. The new kinds of learning that result from PACE are not assessed easily or in a straightforward way due largely to the unique practical and pedagogical challenges presented by learning through participation. This chapter explores these challenges, and highlights some of the creative and innovative approaches used by academics. Nonetheless, as discussed in the chapter, there are still open questions about what can and should be assessed. In order to find the most effective methods, It is also necessary that we allow space and support for experimentation by academics.
