How would you go about assessing the cognitive learning objectives?
These will assessed through question and answer. for instance, they will be asked to state the advantages and disadvantages of conservation farming, green energy etc. how would the environment be restored and protected? Suggest methods we can recommend to to our surrounding villages in restoring the environment. Learner will answer such questions and then we will be able to tell

What variety of assessment methods could you use for assessing the socio-emotional learning objectives?
These would be assessed through a project learners can do in a form of field work. Villagers around the college who are planting trees and keep bees would be put in groups and each learner or two are assigned to be monitoring, supervising, and advice these community members. At the end of it all, they submit a written document on the same.
What assessment approaches would you use to assess the behavioral learning outcomes, especially those that reflect values?
I would identify a place or community which is not sensitive to nature, i.e poor methods of farming, poor disposal of waste, use alot of chemicals in gardens and fields so that i see how they will react having gained all the necessary knowledge about ESD. Then from their reactions, ask them to reflect upon what they ahve seen and suggest how such a community or place can be helped.
How would you assess social learning outcomes associated with the SDG, especially the involvement of learners working with communities on sustainable development actions (as emphasised in Learning Action 3)?
By providing a lot of sessions where learners will interact among themselves in ESD activities and those that demand them to mix with the community members. Furthermore, in the written examinations, scenarios that a social in nature would be added to see how they can deal with different situations.

How could you include the above in an inclusive end of course examination?
To what extent does your assessment reflect assessment of significant learning?
By bringing out various learning objectives from ESD material in their examination which are well aligned to the concepts covered in class and those they have participated in doing themselves together with Lecturers and community members.
