At a time when test results can be everything, high scores may be pursued whatever the cost. Perhaps more than many would admit, the cost is a lack of understanding. This text describes why understanding is worthwhile and what understanding means, particularly in the subjects commonly taught in schools, colleges and higher education. Unlike many books on learning, this text focuses directly on the problem of understanding and how to support it. It recognizes and illustrates the variation of understanding in different contexts and provides a framework for thinking about understanding and how it might be fostered.
