“It is immoral to teach someone something he or she already knows.” Elizabeth Monroe Drews, former Professor of Education, Michigan State University
“… assessment which is only available to those enrolled on a course severely restricts the variety of methods of learning which may be used. We must therefore seek to separate assessment from courses or programmes of learning. If we can do this, it will mean that any means of learning – by course, employment, open or distance-learning, private study etc – can be used to gain the competence needed for an award. It would greatly increase flexibility if assessment could also be offered to all who are ready for it; in other words, we should seek to provide assessment on demand.” National Council for Vocational Qualifications in England (UPDATE, No. 1, 1989)
