Sample text

And, indeed, some of these scandals do appear to follow the disregarding of basic assessment practices, such as observing and interviewing the child and checking case records. However, practitioners are dealing with messy human situations where behaviour is never entirely predictable and where, if there are eight key players, it is possible to have eight competing interpretations of the ‘truth’ of a situation. qxd 12/11/03 6:50 PM 32 Page 32 what is assessment? The traditional notion of assessment implies comparison with some sort of measure or norm and is therefore based on rationalist assumptions.

However, they are less likely to employ scientistic language or attempt to calculate the level of risk within a family. Rather, decisions are seen to emerge. Within the reflective evaluation discourse, again, the opinions of other professionals are sought. The reflective evaluator’s aims might be to check the internal consistency of her reasoning. Any attempt to seek corroboration of views might be seen as a common-sense reasoning device (Wattam, 1992). The Relationship Between Science and Reflection The discourses of scientific observation and reflective evaluation have been presented above as two ways in which social workers understand and explain the decision-making process.

Evaluation ‘pulled together’ at the end. Decision tools. Check with others. Scientific Observation The key elements of this discourse may be summarised as follows. Social workers describe themselves as maintaining an objectivity and distance from the family under assessment. They see the key aims of the assessment as gathering facts and evidence about a family situation and making a decision based on the information gathered. They would avoid reaching a decision until after all information has been gathered and the decision would be made by weighing up the positive factors against the negative, using decision tools and validating their results by consulting with others.
