2015: The multiple limitations of assessment criteria

Transforming Assessment is about exploring the use of information and communications technology to enhance the assessment of student learning in higher education (e-assessment).  In this early morning event, presenter: Emeritus Professor Sue Bloxham (University of Cumbria, UK) will be exploring the use of assessment criteria by experienced markers.

Sue will draw on a recent study which identified five factors in the use of criteria that contribute to marking inconsistency.  The implications for fairness, standards and guidance to students will be discussed.  Discussion will take place on alternatives and enhancements to assessment criteria as typically used in higher education.
