Part A: Your Views on Assessment

The goal of this activity is to help you examine your beliefs pertaining to the assessment practices in higher education.


Jot down your responses to the three questions below:

  1. Based on your experience, do you believe that most assessments used in university courses promote stronger student learning and motivate students to learn? Why/why not?
  2. In your opinion, what kinds of assessment tasks are most effective in supporting student learning? Why?
  3. If there was one thing about current assessment practices in university courses that you could change, what would it be and why?
