Crisp, B. and Green Lister, Pam and Dutton, K. (2005) Integrated assessment : new assessment methods evaluation of an innovative method of assessment-critical incident analysis. Working paper. Scottish Institute for Excellence in Social Work Education, Glasgow.
For many people, the term “assessment” is associated with tasks, which are less than inspiring, which are undertaken only because they are hurdles, which must be crossed in order to achieve some form of accreditation or to enable entry into work or a further course of study. In this worldview, what is important for the student is the final determination or grade assigned to their work. While summative assessment, in which students submit work that is marked by experts and which contributes partially or fully to a final grade, plays an important role in the lives of students and educators, contemporary thinking about “assessment” is much more expansive.
