Abstract

If effective teaching was a simple matter of filling student “cups” by pouring in enough knowledge from the teacher’s “jug”, then assessment would be a simple matter of measuring how much knowledge the students have managed to keep in their “cups” – and passing those who have “enough”. However, over 20 years of teaching and assessment of clients and speech pathology students have taught us that the inter-relationship between learning and assessment is more dynamic, interesting and powerful than commonly assumed
