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?

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

What are not our purposes?

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