Individual and Social Assessment in a Global Distance Education

Abstract : In the context of a growing globalization, encouraged, namely by distance education, we are asked to question the values that it conveys to local cultures. The evaluation procedures that we plan in our courses can thus become another mechanism of homogenization. In order to counter these disadvantages and to build distinct but interdependent local societies, I propose an analysis of evaluation as an ideological tool for the pereptuation of competition or for the construction of solidarity. This presentation is both theoretical, by painting a picture of contemporary ideologies (those of solidarity and those of competition) and practical, by showing how these ideologies function in evaluation and in the construction of knowledge. From this point of view, methodologies, curricula and evaluation are important steps to uncover competition and focus on actions and speeches of solidarity.
