   schema:description "Ipsative assessment is a powerful and under-used approach that provokes a new way of thinking about the purposes and methods of assessment. Competitive assessment is the cornerstone of meritocracy in a fast-adapting society and is widely supported, but there is a price to pay: many learners are not personally and academically fulfilled in selective assessment regimes. Ipsative assessment means making a comparison with self rather than others - marking progress, not just products. Not all learners can be top performers, but all learners can potentially make progress and achieve a personal best. Putting the focus onto learning rather than meeting standards and criteria can also be resource efficient. While not arguing that competitive assessment should be completely replaced, this book explores how a dual system for combining ipsative assessment and selective assessment already exists in the supervision of projects, dissertations and theses. The management and implementation of assessment reform is then considered from a distributed leadership perspective illustrated with an institutional case study. Ipsative assessment may sound utopian, but Gwyneth Hughes shows that in fact it could be used in any educational context to make assessment as enjoyable and rewarding as teaching.
