#purposedassess – a new campaign for August 2011!


After a short lull after the flurry of excitement that was February-June 2011, we’re back with another campaign. This time, we’re focusing on assessment.

Although educators are only part of the people who take part in Purpos/ed campaigns, they’re an important part. As many of this group have a summer break we thought it would be a good time for all of us to take stock and begin with the question:

1. What’s the purpose of assessment?

We’ll be debating this between Monday 1st and Sunday 7th August. Following that, we’ll either continue with the same question into the second week or, more likely, go off at a particular tangent with a new question on assessment emerging from the initial debate.

Want to get involved? We’re going to use Google+ as the platform this time* so follow us (add us to a circle) by going to http://gplus.to/purposed

    Would love an invitation. This definitely ties in with discussions that are presently taking place in our College at the moment. Look forward to keeping in touch with all the insights.
