One of the really big issues in assessment seems to me to be ‘doing’ assessment, then proving you’ve done assessment, then proving you’ve proved that you’ve done assessment!
All of which seems to be to satisfy the system needs of assessment, rather than any useful factors of teaching and learning.
What else would lead to the ridiculous “verbal feedback given” stamps that some music teachers have been issued with. What do you ‘stamp’ in a singing lesson? The sound-waves? The kids foreheads?
Proof, and meta-proof. Evidence for its own sake. The data-Leviathan has been fed. Super!
