Quality and Practice in Assessment: New Approaches in Work-Related Learning
for Educational Research/ University of Jyväskylä
This book introduces new approaches to the assessment of work-related learning and methods for guaranteeing its quality. The book launches the term practice-oriented assessment, with reference to performance- and competence-based assessment and to authentic assessment in work-related learning. Practice-oriented assessment reflects various theoretical positions. These are embedded in work-related and work-based learning, which can be described, for example, under the concepts of reflective, transformative, contextual and situated learning.
this volume, the central features (focus, methods, assessors, context and
quality) of practice-oriented assessment are described in different contexts
and at different levels of European vocational education within the framework
of the Leonardo da Vinci project Quality Assurance and Practice-Oriented
Assessment in VET. The articles in this volume are based on case studies
implemented in the Austrian, Irish, German, Estonian and Finnish contexts.
