Example text

Teaching, for example, may occur in the context of a school. Courses that prepare school teachers take great care to ensure that what is learned is learned in order to be exercised in this context, so that courses for vocational teachers or higher education teachers might differ markedly, not as a result of fundamental differences in how different students learn, but because of the social, institutional and cultural context of the organizations in which teaching occurs. The practices, therefore, of different kinds of teachers in different kinds of settings, differ in quite profound ways, while retaining similar family resemblances.

Interpretation is needed, as raw data alone does not lend itself to fostering change. This highlights the importance of feedback, yet as teachers with increasingly large classes, we can never provide students with as much or as detailed feedback as they need. Indeed, after the end of the course there is no teacher to offer feedback. Consequently, judgements must be formed for ourselves, whether we are students or practitioners, drawing upon whatever resources are available to us. The idea of assessment as informing judgement can take us seamlessly from being a student to becoming a professional practitioner.

And, finally, there is the need to recognise that practice needs to take account of and often involve those people who are the focus of the practice. How well does existing assessment address these features of practice? In general, it meets these requirements very poorly. Even when there is an element of authentic practice in a work setting as part of a course, the experience is separated from other activities and assessment of course units typically occurs separately from placements, practical work and other located activities.
