Abstract:This study concerns the preconditions ne cessary for fair appraisal of performance assessments. There is a focus on the number of assessors needed, the type of assessors who would be best for the job, and to what extent they need to be acquainted with the student. The training someone would need to become a better assessor is also researched. This qualitative study augments earlier results from a systematic review. Theory is used as a basis, and two direct interviews, one panel conversation and a number of e-mail interviews are used to identify stakeholder’s opinions on this matter. Experts agree that more than one assessor is ideal, and that a small-scale training is sufficient. However, there is some disagreement concerning the ideal type of assessor, objective or subjective, and the needed acquaintance level. A multidisciplinary rating team seems ideal, but stakeholders’ disagreement may be too strong to maintain this.
