Rock the boat with feedback, O teachers!

Wise words on the subject of assessment, relevant not just to school teachers but any treacher, trainer, coach, who has to either assess or give feedback or both. In the last thirty years there have been massive strides in the field of evaluation, unfortunately totally ignored by the folk who run awarding visited, exam boards and Ofsted.

There’s also a sad consequence of rocking the boat, or as I call it – recalcitrance.

Keep on rocking the boat in the free world as Neil Young might say. The buggers won’t change if we don’t.
