It is increasingly clear that human judgement is indispensable in the assessment of students, especially in competency-based education. This requires a focus on assessor expertise, because assessing students requires similar expertise to clinical decision making. Managing judgement biases is important in developing such expertise, because such biases are incomplete (or incorrect) representations in the assessor’s mind of what has occurred during the assessment. But, biases are very hard if not impossible to train away so a viable approach is to focus assessor training on developing biases into full-blown person and performance scripts, because possessing such scripts are associated with expertise.
