Relational Evaluation in Education

Relational Evaluation in Education

Gergen&Gill2020_Beyond-the-Tyranny-of-Testing_Relational-Evaluation-in-EducationKenneth J. Gergen and Scherto R. Gill

This book is a the most timely contribution to address our current educational impasse. It

  • Offers a compelling alternative to the measurement-assessment orientation to evaluation that undermines learning and well-being in schools today
  • Improves on the patchy critiques of testing and grading by offering a coherent account of the historical and cultural assumptions on which the measurement-testing tradition is based
  • Richly illustrated with school-based examples that inspire the possibility of a relational approach to evaluation of students, teachers, and whole schools
  • Provides concrete, classroom-rooted practices that can stimulate discussions among school leaders and policy makers

The book leads the dialogue and imagination about a post-Covid world where systemic transformation in education is possible, and where education can nurture the holistic well-being of our students in an inclusive and engaged way. See more about the book HERE.
