This interactive workshop (based on a chapter in a forthcoming book) is intended for any programme or course leader, or Head of School/Department, who seriously wants to improve their assessment practice. Supported by current research, the workshop will argue the need to reduce but improve summative assessment, in particular regarding the assessment of programme outcomes and integrated learning, while increasing opportunities for formative assessment, the development of the students’ assessment literacy, and effective engagement with feedback - and provide practical examples of how this can and has been done.
