Post-secondary institutions note that changing assessment practice has become a key priority. So, what could the future of assessment and feedback look like?
The digital transformation of the education sector over the past two years — whether as an acceleration of a planned strategy or an emergency response — has changed the priorities for higher education.
Valuable lessons have been learned about equity, learning design and interoperability. The move away from traditional exams to other forms of assessment has seen many students, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, perform better.
The future of assessment and feedback looks promising. But key to this is shaping a future where accessible, inclusive and compassionate practices are designed with student needs and experiences in mind.
In this webinar, you’ll learn the seven principles of good assessment and feedback. Based on a sound body of evidence of good pedagogic practice from across the UK and internationally, these principles can be applied to all aspects of learning design and teaching in all sectors of education. They offer an actionable way to improve learning, teaching and assessment, underpinned by the effective application of technology.
You’ll come away from this engaging and interactive webinar with an understanding of how to:
- Help learners understand what they are aiming for by engaging them with the requirements and performance criteria for each task
- Support learners’ personalized needs by being accessible, inclusive and compassionate
- Foster active learning by recognizing that engagement with learning resources, tutors and peers offer opportunities for formative development
- Develop autonomous learners by encouraging self-generated feedback, self-regulation, reflection, dialogue and peer review
- Manage workloads effectively by having the right assessment, at the right time, supported by efficient business processes
- Foster a motivated learning community by involving students in decision making and supporting staff in developing their own practices
- Promote learner employability by assessing authentic tasks and encouraging ethical conduct
