The Value of a Programme-wide Approach to Assessment.
Knight, Peter T.
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v25 n3 p237-51 Sep 2000
Higher education institutions have difficulty providing stakeholders with reliable, valid information about student achievement. High stakes assessment data are ambiguous in communicating such information. It is important to distinguish criterion-referenced assessment from norm-referenced assessment. This paper proposes a system that goes beyond high stakes assessment and describes the design of reliable assessment systems. (SM)
