Forlagets beskrivelse

Assessment for learning (AfL) has become an established idea within higher education, based on the evidence that assessment is one of the most powerful drivers of student learning and thus can be harnessed as a means to improve such learning. Assessment for Social Justice looks at assessment in higher education through the lens of critical pedagogy and social justice, and as such offers new insights to both fields of enquiry.

The starting premise, adopted from AfL, is that the way in which we form and practice assessment can and should influence the social justice outcomes of higher education. Looking at a number of different theories of social justice, Jan McArthur explores how alternative theories provide the foundations for different types of assessment practice. The theories explored include the works of John Rawls, Theodor Adorno, Amartya Sen, Martha Nussbaum, Nancy Fraser and Axel Honneth.

McArthur then explores different examples of assessment and how these embody, or constrain, alternative theories of social justice. She provides a theoretically rigorous understanding of assessment as a social practice, and as a vehicle both for and against social justice. Assessment for social justice is explored in two complementary ways, the justice of assessment within higher education and assessments that promote greater social justice, and in doing so this book contributes to the ongoing debates about the nature and purposes of higher education.
