Using Patchwork Texts in Assessment: Clarifying and Categorising Choices in Their Use
Trevelyan, Rose; Wilson, Ann
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v37 n4 p487-498 2012
An emerging form of assessment is the patchwork text, an application of assessment "for" learning, as opposed to assessment "of" learning. A framework for making choices in how to use patchwork texts in higher education courses is developed, drawing on prior research on, and use of, patchwork texts. These choices reflect the fundamental objectives of patchwork texts, namely continuous learning, deep learning, integrated understanding and critical self-reflection, while also offering options for patchwork texts which can be tailored to particular courses and individual preferences. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
