Educational Assessment as Invitation for Dialogue.
Arnett, Ronald C.; Arneson, Pat
Political legislation clearly indicates this is "the era of assessment." The assessment effort has deep intellectual roots within Western culture's Enlightenment ideal of public display and discussion of knowledge. However, a confounding of this cultural ideal occurs when a lack of communication between leaders in higher education and the public is propelled by a lack of understanding of the other's intellectual position on assessment. Interpersonal communication concepts related to dialogue suggest how this dialogue might be invited with the public to achieve the highest quality of education that a community of discourse can envision.
