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.
- 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.
