Assessing Learning Quality: Reconciling Institutional, Staff and Educational Demands.
Biggs, John
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v21 n1 p5-15 Mar 1996
Two frameworks for educational assessment distinguished, which is quantitative, adequate for construing some kinds of learning, and qualitative, which is more appropriate for most objectives in higher education. The paper argues that institutions implicitly encourage quantitative assessment, thus encouraging a surface approach to learning although qualitative methods support a deeper approach and should be integrated into the assessment system.
