The Practicalities of Assessment


Assessment is a complex process that requires careful planning. This nanocourse takes us a step further in understanding the 'how' of assessment. 

In particular, you will explore three fundamental areas that require decisions as you plan to ‘do’ assessment. These include the types and tools needed for assessment, the frequency and sequence in which assessment should be done and the content and impact that will help us generate meaningful assessment.  The course includes a reading selection from the author's book:  Towards Vital Wholeness in Theological Education.
