I wrote a thing about the six criteria we use to describe assessments.
I view most of these as "false dichotomies" as assessment is (IMHO) a review of the educator & not of student. Assessments should change with new learning, practices, & skills.
Thrilled to announce that #Annotation - a book that @email@example.com & I have written for the @firstname.lastname@example.org Essential Knowledge series - is available for #openreview via @email@example.com! The peer review will be open all summer, pls RT & share your thoughts using #AnnoConvo https://bookbook.pubpub.org/annotation
