In this article contrasts are made between usable and useful
knowledge. Usable knowledge represents knowledge that
someone finds pertinent. Useful knowledge has a function and
can lead to specific action. The applications to educational
assessment and evaluation are clear in that much assessment
knowledge is developed at a level that is nominally usable, but
provides no real guidance in the improvement of learning.
Knowledge management through the measurement of social and
organizational capital is suggested as a strategy to augment
accountability policies based exclusively on test scores. This
approach would work as a way to set targets and monitor the
development of schools as an institution, responsible for
performance by adults and students that extend beyond
measured performance.
