"Including formative evaluation in teaching is vastly important to learning."

(Hattie, J. (2012) Visible Learning for Teachers.)

“Evaluation directs learning more than any other single factor in the learning context.”

(Entwistle & Entwistle, 1992; Hodgson & Pang, 2012; Segers & Dochy, 2006; Struyven, Dochy & Janssens, 2005)

“Self-guidance means the ability and skill to listen to oneself, set goals and act accordingly.”

(Sports psychologist Tuomas Grönman, http://www.gronman.fi/blogi/pelaajasta-superpelaajaksi/ )

"The best learning results are achieved by learners who can evaluate their level of knowledge
with respect to their goals."

(Hattie, J. (2009) Visible Learning)

"Qridi Sport is an excellent tool for developing both the skills of players and the competence of coaches. In Finnish tennis, we also believe in strong cooperation, and with Qridi Sport, we can make our communications more open and help the players develop and already improve their sense of ownership towards tennis when young."
Harri Suutarinen, Finnish Tennis Association, Coach of the Finnish National Junior Tennis Team
