From Session 4 of RILS 2021: In this session, we use a theory of action framework as a tool for structuring, communicating, and implementing balanced assessment systems. Articulating and interrogating the way in which a system is meant to function – and actually functions – in service to achieving a specified goal or goals is critically important.
We define the characteristics of a balanced assessment system, explore how they intersect with a theory of action framework, and outline the focal role of assessment information when considering system design and composition.
