Summary of theme and why it is important:  In 2019 an updated version of the criteria for good assessment was published. The most notable change was the addition of a framework for systems of assessment. Education and practice in the health professions requires knowledge, skills, and attitudes that cannot be captured in a single assessment. Separate measures are required, and these are frequently applied in isolation. Systems of assessment integrate this series of individual measures to achieve one or more purposes (e.g. feedback versus decisions, high vs. no stakes) for one or more groups of stakeholders (e.g. students, faculty, patients, and regulatory bodies). The development and implementation of such systems is challenging and there is little guidance available to help educators.
