Here is a useful guide if you are interested in continuous assessment as an inclusive form of assessment . Patchwork assessment means “The essence of a patchwork is that it consists of a variety of small sections, each of which is complete in itself, and that the overall unity of these component sections, although planned in advance, is finalized retrospectively, when they are ‘stitched together’.” Winter (2003: 112) .
