‘Assessment is at the heart of the learning process. It provides evidence of what students have learned and, more importantly, the effectiveness of teaching. This publication raises important questions about the extent to which assessment is considered as an intrinsic element of preparation for teaching. It should be essential reading for all involved in teaching and lecturing.’ – Dr Colin Conner, formerly Senior Lecturer, University of Cambridge
