Humane Assessment

Published by Tudor Girba
Assessment is an act of reasoning. It is what we should do before taking a decision. However, when large amounts of data are involved, assessment gets complicated because we are just not equipped to handle many details.

Data is here to stay. Whether under the form of software systems or otherwise, we will only get more, so we better get good at dealing with it. We need tools to deal with the vastness of data, but these tools should bend around humans, rather than requiring humans to conform to them. Moose is such a tool. It offers an extensive, flexible and open-source platform for analyzing data in general and software systems in particular.

Tools are important, but we need to recognize that assessment is a human activity, and that we have to tackle it as such. Analysis tools should merely assist analysts by crunching data only when and how it is requested.

I call this approach the humane (or agile) assessment, and this document provides a short overview of it.

 Assessment is an act of reasoning. Itis what we should do before taking adecision.In most cases, we do. It’s just that when we have to deal with largeamounts of data assessment getssuddenly difficult. It is difficultbecause we, as human beings, are justnot equipped to handle more than ahandful of details at a time.Data is here to stay. Whether underthe form of software systems orotherwise, we will only get more data,so we better get good at dealing withit. We do need tools to deal with the vastness of data, but rather thanforcing humans to conform to them,these tools should bend aroundhumans, and around the particularity of the problem at hand.For too long professionals wereasked to conform to tools. Tools areimportant, but we need to recognizethat assessment is a human activity,and that we have to tackle it as such. Analysis tools should merely assistanalysts by crunching data only whenand how it is requested.
