Hare-brained utilitarian doctrine
But I would go further. Although AfL is not of itself a bad thing, it has shifted the balance dangerously away from flamboyant and inspirational teaching peformance towards the dreary assessment of pupil learning and the burgeoning collection of data that goes with it. This has spawned a generation of lacklustre pedagogic clones all singing from the same boring and bureaucratic songsheet.
