This paper describes some issues concerning assessment
and the corresponding motivation for students to work in
a desired manner. The issues came from studying
assessment in the Runestone project, but are, as we see
them, of general interest. Our findings illustrate the need
to not take the effects of assessment, nor what it
measures, for granted. It is our intention to promote
Computer Science Education research as an essential area
for improving our education, in this case by exposing
myths about assessment as myths.
