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. Resource allocation: who needs help and what with

  2. Quality control: are we teaching well and the right thing

  3. Fairness: objective published criteria means everyone knows what is expected

  4. Flexibility: defining exit criteria per module will make it possible for us to modularise the course and allow retakes

  5. Specialisation: who could flourish by taking a specialised path

What are not our purposes?

  1. Exclusion

  2. Passing or failing people

Our module is a product. Our trainees are its tests.
