Abstract

This paper provides an introduction to the concept of graded assessment, a recently developed and influential area relating to assessment and certification. The notions of graded assessment are described. Pertinent features of the examination system in Ireland are reviewed to highlight graded or graduated aspects of current assessment provision and to provide a context for understanding the attractions, potential, and problems of graded assessment. The policy options opened up by graded assessment are examined and, as far as can be ascertained from the scope of pilot projects in Great Britain, the directions in which policy seems to be headed are noted. The paper concludes with an outline of a number of evaluation issues relating to graded assessment, drawing on material on graded assessment and on more general material in the fields of educational psychology and assessment.
