Assessment Wisdom

Some ideas for further thought….

We are too busy to spend time on assessment if it doesn’t affect practice. (Prof. Randy Swing)

Measure what you value rather than valuing what you can measure.

Is assessment a primary or secondary process? Does it interfere with our real jobs or is it part of our real jobs?

Schooling leads people to “confuse teaching with learning, grade advancement with education, a diploma with competence, and fluency with the ability to say something new” Ivan Illich, Deschooling Society (New York: Harper and Row, 1971, p.1).
