Understanding Assessment through Language

Over the summer I wrote a paper that explores the role of language in outcomes assessment: how it can help and how it can get in the way of understanding what's going on. This exercise clarified for me the long-term importance of eportfolios, and the risks inherent to abstract forms of assessment. I will look for a publisher eventually, but in the meantime I welcome your comments.
