Many versions of the assessment loop contain a reporting stage. The loop below substitutes a stage labeled record/reflect, in keeping with the recording model of assessment that the wiki makes possible. Programs own their own pages and use them to record assessment results; they do not complete and submit forms, as they would in a reporting model.

The ability of the wiki to store comments, becoming itself a locus of vibrant discussion about assessment results, means that the order recording of the "reflect" and "record" stages in the diagram below is arbitrary. In other words, reflection (in the form, say, of discussion in a department meeting), may be included in the recorded results, or added afterward in the form of comments, or both. Indeed, it can continue even after action has been taken and the cycle has been renewed.Image Removedand reflection on results do not represent distinct stages. Recorded results may contain reflection (from a department meeting, for example) but may continue generating discussion indefinitely.
