Presented by Dr Christine Slade.

The course will explore fundamental concepts influencing assessment practice including purposes of assessment, the ideas of constructive alignment (of learning outcomes, learning opportunities and assessment) and possible roles for students in assessment.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss examples of good practice and to practice assessment design.

This course will enable participants to: 

1. Explore task design that is underpinned by UQ's principles for assessment 
2. Determine how to collaboratively design and develop quality assessment tasks through engagement with colleagues 
3. Recognise opportunities to embed constructive feedback into assessment design 
4. Value the role of criteria and standards in assessment that makes sense to you, your school and your students 
5. Adopt practices for quality assessment that assures students are genuinely completing their own tasks.
