Wolf then analyzes the theoretical assumptions which competence-based assessment shares with the criterion-referenced movement as a whole, distinguishing clearly between those claims which can be sustained and those which cannot. She also synthesizes the growing body of evidence on implementation. Many lessons have now been learned about whether and how one can establish a workable, robust and reliable competence-based system. It has become evident both that the preconditions for success are often missing and that, if they are ignored, competence-based "reforms" may have largely negative consequences. The final chapter reviews the prospects for competence-based awards and offers some conclusions on what is essential to a competence-based approach.
