Summary:
Innovation in assessment is often presented as if it were unproblematic, but in practice it rarely is. This book is not a 'how to' guide on tactics to improve your assessment. Instead, it provides a fundamental analysis of the role and purpose of assessment and how change can be managed without compromising standards.
