Assessment

The purpose of assessment is to assess the learning, not that the students can write.

Traditional modes of assessment often unfairly discriminate against SpLD, International, BAME and Widening Participation students.

Action.

  • Create flexible alternative assessments, providing choices that are of equal importance and continue to meet the same criteria for research, analysis and communication as traditional modes, e.g. blogs, magazines, television.
  • Ensure the topics are culturally diverse.
  • Demonstrate characteristics of good assignments using examples; explain plagiarism and Turnitin.
  • Ensure students know how their work will be assessed.
