What are the differences between a psychometric approach to assessment, found more commonly in the US, and one that is embedded in a broader view of curriculum aims and linked to teaching, as in the UK? Could UK awarding bodies learn from a more ‘scientific’ approach in the development of our examinations? Or could an over-reliance on standardised testing principles lead to a reductive style of examining which is in conflict with the UK’s tradition?
