About this module

Are the assessments you give your students effective? Do the assessments used in your context apply good practice and the contemporary principles that underpin success? Assessment is one of the most significant influences on the student experience in higher education, so it is essential that we get it right. The aim of this module is to help you build knowledge of contemporary assessment principles and develop skills to apply in your context. At the end of the module, you will design an assessment task drawing on the principles, strategies and feedback from the module to apply what you have learned for the benefit of your learners.
