In this episode, we had a relatively free-flowing conversation on the issues of classroom-based assessment. We wanted to get into the specifics of the essays, MCQ tests, reflections and other theory-type papers that students write as part of their curricular work. Of course, we recognise that there is no real distinction between “university” and “clinical” assessment in practice but we wanted to specifically discuss the kinds of assessment tasks that lecturers typically set for students in the classroom.
Look out for Part II of this discussion.
