Assessment in theological education: An appeal for theological and educational integration

Author: Allan Harkness
Date: April 27th, 2012
Key Words: Educational assessment, theological values, integration.

Assessment is a significant component of theological education. Set in the context of South East Asian theological education but with broader relevance, this chapter/article calls for greater consideration to be given to assessment approaches used in the curricula of seminaries to ensure that there is clearer congruency between the institutions’ espoused theological values and their “theological values in use” in the assessment methodologies utilised. The scope of educational assessment is summarised, some significant theological values in Evangelical theological education are identified and suggestions given for practical assessment practices consistent with these values.
Both these items contain similar material: start with the book chapter, and then read the JATE article for a more extended treatment of the issue.
