Summary This is the first book to focus on assessors' feelings, thoughts and behaviour when failing students. The initial context considered is professional education where success confers 'competence to practice' a profession such as medicine, nursing, school teaching, social work or occupational therapy. The aim is to assist assessors to confront the challenge of unsafe or potentially incompetent students. The privilege of professional self-regulation demands that these issues are addressed scrupulously
