Hot off the press from TEQSA is a sector developed resource “Assessment reform for the age of artificial intelligence“.

The resource was compiled through expert collaboration and draws on a body of knowledge from the assessment and learning literature that seeks to outline directions for the future of assessment.

The document aims to provide a compass, rather than a prescription, for possible future assessment practices that can take advantage of the opportunities and manage the risks of AI, specifically generative AI.

TEQSA is calling for your feedback

TEQSA is inviting feedback on the proposal outlined in the paper, including the principles and propositions.
You can share your feedback by emailing by 5pm on Friday 20 October.
To assist in incorporating your feedback, please address the following questions in your submission:

  1. What feedback do you have on the two principles and five propositions?
  2. Thinking about the application of these principles and propositions to your
    specific context, do you have examples of where these will work or not work?
  3. What do you think needs to happen next to support the required change in the
    sector and/or at your institution?

At the end of the consultation period, TEQSA and the lead authors of the document will consider all feedback received before publishing the final guidelines in late November 2023.
