Basically, this involves students using technology to prepare and present work for assessment. Some simple examples include students preparing essays using a word processor or completing tasks using a spreadsheet application and submitting their work via e-mail. E-mail can also be used to provide a mechanism for the all-important feedback process from the teacher or from other students if collaborative group work or peer assessment is being used. We recognise that information technology and telecommu- nications can be helpful and positive tools or resources for assessment. But we also have serious reservations about the way technology is being used as a tool in the assessment process. This is because the technology is so well suited for the administration and scoring of objective- type tests of the multiple-choice or true/false kind. We are seeing something of a resurgence of this kind of assessment in higher education with all of the well-known negative influences this may have on learning when items are poorly constructed or test only recall. All we can do here is urge caution, use good-quality test items, and to always ensure that students receive helpful feedback on their learning. FEEDBACK TO STUDENTS Major purposes of assessing student learning are to diagnose difficulties and to provide students with feed- back. Several approaches to doing this have already been identified in this chapter and some of the methods described readily lend themselves to providing opportu- nities for feedback. To be specific: 161 use structured written feedback on essays; provide immediate feedback on technical, interperso- nal, or oral skills as an outcome of direct observations, orals or practical assessments; and use self-assessment which includes feedback as part of the process. Some guidelines for giving feedback include the following: keep the time short between what students do and the feedback; balance the positive with the negative; indicate how the student can improve in specific ways; encourage students to evaluate themselves and give feedback to each other; and make the criteria clear when setting work and relate feedback to the criteria.

His superior judgment, shown by his ability to appreciate situations in their proper perspec- tive, to allocate priorities, and to make sound decisions, was tempered with a rare, subtle sense of humor and dominated his professional and private life. His surgical technique was superb: he handled tissue with a gentle kindness rarely seen in surgeons of his generation. After examining a patient, he frankly told him the advantages and disadvantages of the therapy to be used.

Talking about one’s pain is difficult, whether with family, friends, co-workers, or physicians. Pain is a popular public topic much in the news recently, with highly publicized releases of new drugs, such as the controversial COX-2 (type 2 cyclooxygenase) in- hibitors. Drugs do exist to control even excruciating pain, drugs as old as the hills—narcotics, the descendants of opium. The dark side of pain control involves complex societal and personal fears of addiction and its myriad, destructive consequences.

Harris had told me about many complexities in her life, including alcoholism. Harris ﬁts one oft-held stereotype of the “drug seeker,” medical slang for people who want narcotics, presumably to feed addictions. And she knows these views well: “You gotta understand, where we live at, so many people is preju- diced, and they don’t want no black people. For Mattie Harris, as for mil- lions of others, no quick solution exists. Pain is a lonely state, outside the preferred medical paradigm of being easily quantiﬁed, measured objec- tively (by an outsider), visualized, or scanned.
