Assessment is a key element of any learning program; it is through assessment that we know our students, and know what they have learnt; it is the quality control mechanism for our graduates; it is an important feedback loop on the effectiveness of our teaching. Assessment is central to learning design, and yet it is often the thing we think of last. In this video, Ann discusses some of the key ideas driving assessment practice, and raise questions regarding assessment strategy and design such as:
- What makes good assessment?
- What are some principles of a sound assessment strategy, and why
- Some new ways forward – what will you do differently?
