Strategic learning is defined by Deshler and Lenz (1989) as "how the person thinks and acts when planning, executing and evaluating performance on a task and its outcomes". Knowledge about strategic learning has been available for about 20 years (Ellis, Deshler, Lenz, Schumaker, & Clark, 1990); however, learning is generally assessed by evaluating a finished product (i.e., book report, math examination, science project), not by assessing the strategic process defined by Deshler and Lenz. The learner's overt actions, not the covert actions, are typically considered a measure of learning (Clift, Ghatala, Naus, & Poole, 1990).
