Reviewing your assessment strategy

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Begin by thinking about your current assessment practice. The questions below will help guide your reflection.

    *How do you currently assess your students? List the methods you use.
    *Is each assessment worth doing and can/do you explain to your students why?
    *Can you explain how the assessment methods you currently use are matched to the expected learning outcomes?
    *What skills and capabilities do you want your students to leave your unit/course with?
    *Approximately how much does each assessment process cost students and staff in terms of time taken and resources used?
    *Do you feel you might be over assessing? How do you know?
    *What criteria do you use? Are they yours, or can you involve students themselves in formulating them?
    *Do the students know the criteria? Do they really understand them?
    *Is the feedback you give your students clearly related to your assessment criteria?
    *How well does the feedback students receive on assessed work help them to know how they are doing?
    *How much practice and guidance do students get in the chosen assessment methods?
    *What assessments do students enjoy and why?
    *How do you know that the students find your assessments useful?
    *In what ways do the assessments help your student learn?

Review your assessment strategy regularly. It can be even more productive when done in partnership with your students and colleagues.
