This is really an exciting time to be working in the field of assessment in medical education. Our views on how to assess medical competence and performance are changing dramatically. The good thing about this is that it is not so much an issue of replacing old theories with new ones. Rather it seems as if we are combining old theories with new ones, which makes our perspective so much wider. Even more interesting is to see that although these two sets of theories represent seemingly opposing views they in fact have considerable commonalities.
