What is judged to be an appropriate level and type of mathematical knowledge, for example, may vary between engineers who use mathematics, and mathematicians who may have a role in teaching it. A focus on standards also draws attention to the problem that there are far more things to learn, know and do than can possibly be included in the assessment regime of any particular course or unit of study. Rather than attempt to squeeze an excessive number of outcomes into assessment acts it may be necessary, as the late Peter Knight has persuasively argued (Knight, 2007), to ensure that the environment of learning provides sufficient opportunities to warrant that learning has occurred rather than to end-load course assessment with so many tasks that they have to be approached by students in a manner that produces overload and ensures they are dealt with in a superficial way.

To talk of them as practices is to acknowledge that they are not just the exercise of the knowledge and skills of practitioners, but to see them as fulfilling particular purposes in particular social contexts. The practice is meaningful within the context in which it takes place. To abstract it from the environment in which it operates is to remove key features of the practice. Teaching, for example, may occur in the context of a school. Courses that prepare school teachers take great care to ensure that what is learned is learned in order to be exercised in this context, so that courses for vocational teachers or higher education teachers might differ markedly, not as a result of fundamental differences in how different students learn, but because of the social, institutional and cultural context of the organizations in which teaching occurs.
