Activities, assignments and assessment/Principles of assessment
Kathryn Hill's pre-recorded presentation for AAAOpenConf2013.
Notes[edit | edit source]
We can't separate assessment from its purpose. Consider the purpose of assessment when asking "Why do we assess?" Efficiency and effectiveness of assessment
There are 3 criteria; Evidence, Interpretation, Use
Evidence - what, how, who, by whom - there are MANY different types of assessment. We tend to focus on a few types in higher education.
There is always an assessment criteria; just sometimes, it is not explicit. Reliability
- if a student is scared, it is not a reliable assessment!!
The more items of assessment, the more reliable it is.
