Are you looking for ideas or advice for planning assessments?

Some new resources have been added to the Assessment & Feedback Toolkit

that you may find helpful when planning assessments for the next academic year.

  • The University of Leeds has published a compendium of assessment types which includes student perspectives.

  • JISC has recently published a report on the future of assessment – setting out five principles and 5 targets for 2025.

The 5 principles are:

  • Authentic assessment
  • Accessible assessment
  • Appropriately automated assessment
  • Continuous assessment and
  • Secure assessment

Do remember when you are planning assessments for Level 4, 5 and 7 for the academic year 2020-21 that they must align with the principles

and parameters set out in ARPP Principles of Assessment Design Policy 6c. Assessments for Level 6 will follow this new pattern in the following academic year.

Here is the link to 6c.

  • Leaflet on Promoting Assessment Literacy

You may have received a paper copy of this concertina in your pigeonhole but the content is now included in the Assessment & Feedback Toolkit.
