Instruction and assessment are integrated; assessment of the process and products occur throughout the instructional period as well as after and both assessor and candidates view it as separate from the instruction, e.g., candidates read and discuss a case learning or scenario and then take a unit test. The assessor defines assessment criteria at the beginning of instruction and uses them at designated checkpoints and at the end of instruction. The assessor and candidates generate assessment criteria at the beginning of their instructional task and use that criterion to measure the process and products of their learning throughout their work as well as at the end. The assessor frequently checks for understanding by listening to candidate discussions and probing the depths of their knowledge while candidates engage in self-assessment or in participating workshops or management games.
