Beyond the Tyranny of Testing

Relational Evaluation in Education

Kenneth J. Gergen and Scherto R. Gill

  • Offers a compelling alternative to the measurement-assessment orientation to evaluation that undermines learning and well-being in schools today
  • Richly illustrated with school-based examples that inspire the possibility of a relational approach to evaluation of students, teachers, and whole schools
  • Unites evaluation practices to the dialogic turn in pedagogy and curriculum formation, thus paving the way to a vital transformation in education
  • Provides concrete, classroom-rooted practices that can stimulate discussions among school leaders and policy makers
