Assessment and Feedback: Aligning Dance Practice with Pedagogic Research

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  04 January 2013

Abstract

This paper reports on three years of research conducted through the Centre for Excellence in Performance Arts at De Montfort University. The intention of the paper is to align the assessment of dance practice with pedagogic concerns. The development of an innovative approach to assessment and feedback is discussed with respect of the nature of dance practice, constructive alignment, and validity and reliability. Whilst this research derives from practice-based research, it is also informed by published material on pedagogy and hermeneutics.
