Enhance your assessment design

Attend the next Showcasing Teaching & Learning Innovation event to learn about the psychology of assessment design, try out the Assessment Ideas Factory online database, and engage in authentic assessment discussions.

Why attend?

Enjoy a light lunch before hearing from learning sciences expert Associate Professor Jason Lodge on the psychology of assessment design. Jason will speak to assessment design that addresses learning as a developmental, longitudinal process vs. learning as performance.

Have you heard about UQ’s Assessment Ideas Factory? Learn about this handy tool from Mair Underwood and Chris Frost and participate in a hands on session to explore the database. Please bring your own device (phone or iPad).

You’ll also be invited to participate in small breakout groups to discuss the challenges and opportunities of assessment design.

Topics include:

  • The challenges and benefits of limiting the number of assessment tasks to 3
  • Assessment design strategies for reducing opportunities for academic misconduct
  • When is the best time for assessment to occur?
  • Hot topic offered from the floor
