chapter  1
Values for best practice in assessment
Pages 3

We begin this book by identifying some values as a starting point on our mission to optimise assessment in terms of validity, reliability, authenticity and transparency. For a start, let’s try to define or explain these terms in straightforward English, and add some further values to work towards in our assessment. We have continued to address the agenda in this section throughout the book, so please regard this initial exposition as just a summary of the overall picture.
