For a number of years now, the practical element of pre-service teacher education has been taken in primary and secondary schools under the guidance of members of the school staff, and tutors from the college or university department of education. The tutor may also be called upon to give an assessment of the student's ability to teach. Despite various attempts to break away from assessments by grading, the fact remains that the majority of student-teachers practise are assessed this way. The recurrent problem, then, is on what criteria should the assessment be based?
