In conclusion let me simply recognize how critical it is that our assessment methods and strategies become sufficiently sophisticated to meet the needs of our rapidly expanding knowledge and information society. Credentials, certificates, quality assurance concerning educational outcomes, helpful feedback in the service of self-directed learning, sound representation, and appraisal of the personal qualities required for successful careers, effective citizenship, and a good life will be critical for the 21st Century.
