Enhancing teaching and learning through assessment
Place of Publication
The 21st century presents new challenges relating to the need for assessment to be more innovative, more responsive to students' needs, and more relevant and authentic. The characteristics of good assessment are well known and resources abound to assist academic staff to change their practices. Yet, at a time when the imperative for reconsidering practices has never been greater, it appears to be very difficult to bring about and maintain substantive change in assessment. This paper presents case studies that illustrate the way some academic staff have responded to the challenges. In particular, how the online environment can enhance learning through formative assessment is illustrated with four case studies. The paper outlines specific challenges faced in each case and discusses issues that arose during development and delivery. It concludes by identifying some of the factors that helped to facilitate changes in assessment practices in these specific cases.
