Interested in assessment? You should be:
“Assessment is a central feature of teaching and the curriculum. It powerfully frames how students learn and what students achieve. It is one of the most significant influences on students’ experience of higher education and all that they gain from it. The reason for an explicit focus on improving assessment practice is the huge impact it has on the quality of learning.” Boud, D. and Associates (2010).
On April 17th join us for the Festival of Assessment, a day of assessment fun jointly sponsored by the Academic Senate and the PVCs L&T and Programs and Pathways.
Highlights of the day include:
- Gamification of Academic Integrity by UTS academic Dr Amanda White
- Using needs analysis to guide assessment by our very own Dr Loy Lising
- How assessment will feature in the CMS by Professor Sean Brawley
- And far less interesting, but possibly important:
A round table of possible changes to the Assessment Policy by Mitch Parsell
