ABSTRACT
The article points out that while progress has been made in recent decades toward objectives and methods of teaching which give proper place to ideas, to meanings, and to relationships, schools in the United States often neglect understandings in favor of such outcomes as verbalism, barren factual information, and mechanical skills. The teacher must take into consideration what a child already knows. The best means of combating inefficient, erroneous, meaningless, and incomplete learning is to obtain daily evidence through measurement.
