My associate was explaining a concept to do with distributed datasets on the whiteboard to some people at work. He was making a judgement about how much they understood.
I think they understood it more than he gave them credit for, and he continued to explain after they had got his big idea.
I'm trying to find a word to describe "his understanding of their understanding".
Here is what I have come up with so far:
- cognitive empathy
- meta epistemology
- pedagogical epistemology
- skill in teaching
My question is: What is the word for "understanding someone's level of understanding"?
