In 1976, A F Chalmers first published a book intriguingly titled ‘What is this thing called Science’. In that book, he attempted to introduce to readers modern views about the nature of science. As Chalmers explained aspects of scientific thinking such as experimentation, falsification, Kuhn’s paradigm and the Bayesian approach, it became evident very quickly that the nature of enquiry into “scientific” knowledge is, if anything, singularly complex. We find ourselves in quite the same boat when we begin to unpack this thing called “Assessment” – singularly complex and often reduced to a singular notion.
