    Thanks for the overview of the debate, Samuel. The participants on both sides made some excellent points.

    Having said that, something that I think tends be skirted around in these kinds of discussions is the difference between "learning" and "assessment".

    If the latter is robust and authentic, the style of the former doesn't matter so much.

    Quite agree with the conclusions - also reflected in this blog http://tinyurl.com/3s6f4lx based on our experience at BT.
