Project name Assessing students unfamiliar with assessment practices in Australian Universities
Project Description The objective of this research project was to determine how equivalency of student learning, assessment and attainment of the required skills can be ensured through assessment practices that take into account students with different cultural and learning backgrounds. The generic skills expected of accounting graduates which have been articulated by the two largest Australian accounting bodies, CPA Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (ICAA), provided the underpinning for the study.

Summary This dataset relates to the assessment practices used in the RMIT School of Accounting and Law in programs taught in Melbourne, Singapore and Hong Kong between 2005 and 2006. These assessment parctices were examined to determine, first, how they measured students’ attainment of the profession’s generic skills, and second, whether different approaches to assessment were taken across the three locations. The students enrolled in these programs were investigated - their cultural backgrounds, their prior learning experiences, their assessment practices and their performance in assessment. At the same time, consultations were held with teaching staff and with employers across the three locations to determine their views about assessment and student and graduate quality. Finally, as a result of the feedback from the previous stages, a number of different approaches to assessment were trialled and evaluated.
