“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.”
Australian Learning and Teaching Council’s Assessment 2020.
The Festival of Assessment is brought to the Macquarie community by the Academic Senate, Professor Dominique Parrish, PVC Learning and Teaching, and Professor Sean Brawley, PVC Programs and Pathways.
