Most Progressive Child

 

Over the past decades, intellectuals have continuously highlighted the need for a constructive and progressive approach to learning and knowledge. Learning is now viewed as active, dialogic and participatory. However, an underlying problem remains how to determine the success of this opposition to the traditional methods of learning in the practical affairs of schools on a child.
Using the emic/etic approach, the goal of this paper is to investigate the viability of standardized testing as a determinant of a child’s learning progress. Using an engagement with holistic learning theory, this paper focuses on the overall development of the Nigerian child, placing emphasis not only on academic learning but also on personality, skills, and interactions with society. This paper argues for a willingness to reimagine more ways to determine the progressive Nigerian child through a juxtaposition of existing literature, and ethnographic research method.
Keywords: progressive, Nigerian child, standardized testing, holistic learning.
