'Can I have me on here?': 'ability' and the language of pupil-progress

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

The flip-side of teaching-as-delivery is assessment-as-ventriloquism.

This article notes the hierarchising and normalising intention of currently authorised versions of assessment, and looks for a countervailing practice and language.
