Assessment, Control, and Autonomy: Macroscopic Perspectives
Higher Education in Europe, v30 n2 p167-171 Jul 2005
Assessments such as ranking exercises arguably level the playing field for stakeholders. Quality assurance may remain a challenge for consumers, but "public" assessments do provide a nominal element of independence or autonomy.

It offers some developmental perspectives on assessment as an organic work-in-progress for the scientific and research community.
