English abstract
The aim of the project is to use assessment in developing students’ professional competence during their courses of studies for qualification as social workers, teachers and dentists in a culturally heterogeneous society. The difficulty of uniting theory and practice into a cohesive whole is worked upon by the use of simulated authentic situations. The students describe professional scenarios. These are used in self-assessment, seminars and interactive assessment. The situations are at times characterized strongly by specific theoretical knowledge but at other times only indirectly so. The students describe situations that occur in professional practice, analyse these and enact them, compare their own handling of the situation with others’, and articulate their need to further develop their competence. Everything is documented in the learning management system Xpand and is easily searched through.
Swedish abstract
Projektets syfte är att använda bedömning för att utveckla studenternas professionella kompetens i socionom-, lärar- och tandläkarutbildning. Svårigheten att i utbildningarna förena teori och praktik till en helhet bearbetas genom användningen av simulerade au-tentiska situationer. Studenterna beskriver professionella händelser. De används vid självbedömning, seminarier och examination. Situationerna är dels starkt laddade med specifik teoretisk kunskap och dels mer otydliga. Studenterna beskriver praktiksituatio-ner, analyserar och handlar, jämför sin egen hantering av en situation med andras och artikulerar sitt behov av kompetensutveckling. Allt dokumenteras på nätplattformen Xpand och är lätt att söka.
