Psychological Modeling of Cognitive Processes in Knowledge Assessment by Experts: Some Convergent Issues with Psychological Modeling in Medical Reasoning
Knowledge assessment is a component of any teaching situation set up for the purpose of enabling people to acquire all or part of a body of knowledge (e.g. mathematics, physics, natural language, etc.) Any knowledge assessment task involves making a ‘statement’ about an ‘object’ that has been produced by the learner during (or at the end of) the training. The assessment thus ‘qualifies’ the object with respect to the body of knowldege to be acquired.
