A rapid shift to online assessment has highlighted questions around how we assess university students but has overlooked the interrelated but outstanding issue of what is being assessed. A transformed assessment landscape should fit the needs of the twenty first century.

This session looks at broad principles underpinning assessment for a digital world. It then focuses on how assessment might equip students to deal with the fourth industrial revolution where artificial intelligence will be part of their work and social lives.

Transforming Assessment is the ASCILITE e-Assessment SIG. The international webinar series hosts speakers on topics related to assessment in higher education with a focus on the digital environment. You will be joining an international audience. Transforming Assessment webinars are free and sessions are recorded.
