Abstract
This presentation will focus on the nature of quality assessment as it involves the use of criteria and standards. Of special interest is the pedagogic use of stated features of quality and how they can be incorporated into a dialogic approach to learning and teaching. Also considered will be the source of criteria and standards and how judgement can be understood as drawing on three categories of criteria namely stated criteria, latent criteria and meta-criteria. The ideas explored in the session have direct relevance to quality assurance methods and moderation practices involving the use of standards.
