Abstract: It is well known by those at the ‘chalk face’ that learning is not necessarily an outcome of teaching. “Students often fail to spontaneously use what they have learned in a new setting despite the fact that it is highly relevant” (Schwarz et al., 1999) a phenomenon Whitehead referred to as “inert knowledge” (Whitehead, 1929). However, judicious and appropriate use of assessment, as a way of checking for learning rather than to reveal what students don’t know (i.e. for ‘punishment’!) or simply to produce a rank order, can ameliorate this problem by promoting conceptual understanding and encouraging students to employ deep learning approaches.
