What is evaluation for?

Graduation is not a gift we give our trainees. It's something they earn themselves according to objective, published, measurable criteria.

What are our purposes in assessment?

  1. 1.
    Resource allocation: who needs help and what with
  2. 2.
    Quality control: are we teaching well and the right thing​
  3. 3.
    Fairness: objective published criteria means everyone knows what is expected
  4. 4.
    Flexibility: defining exit criteria per module will make it possible for us to modularise the course and allow retakes
  5. 5.
    Specialisation: who could flourish by taking a specialised path

What are not our purposes?

  1. 1.
  2. 2.
    Passing or failing people
Our module is a product. Our trainees are its tests.
