Effective use of assessment methods

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The outcome of assessments can be pivotal. Generally, assessment performance dictates progression through a degree course and the class of degree achieved which in turn will influence future employers. It is therefore vital that tutors ensure that each assessment is fair, transparent and valid. However, the people who set assessments are usually those who were good at them at university and this can affect how different methods are judged.
