Input standards and quality The SARTOR 3 approach led all-too-quickly to the use of input standards as a convenient and readily quantifiable proxy for quality of a course. Market forces, it was claimed, would ensure that the ‘best’ courses would be able to attract the ‘most able’ students who, in turn, would produce the ‘best qualified’ graduates. This is not the place to explore the paucity of understanding of the current UK education system exhibited by this approach, and the games which started to be played by some Admission Tutors, but suffice it to say that, to engineers at least, the use of one input criteria to indicate output quality from any process is deeply flawed.

A study into how students experience the whole of an engineering physics programme (Booth and Ingerman, 2002) can serve to illustrate the concerns that teachers could be addressing in this large-scale perspective on a pedagogy for supporting students’ awareness of their own professional development. The study came about because of a sudden and drastic drop-out in the second year 19 20 Shirley Booth of a four and a half year programme, conjectured to be a result of packing more humanities and problem solving into the already packed first-year curriculum.
