The complex interconnections between assessment and learning have increasingly come to the fore in research and scholarship as well as in debates about standards and quality.  This colloquium provides an opportunity to explore new findings, insights and perspectives on the role of assessment in sustaining and enhancing high quality learning.  There will be four invited keynotes:

  • Professor Royce Sadler, Griffith University, Queensland.   This will focus on the consequences of breaking down holistic judgments on students' work into criterion-based grading models.
  • Professor David Nicol, Strathclyde University. His keynote will draw on findings from the Re-engineering Assessment Practices Project.
  • Professor David Boud, University of Technology, Sydney.  He will talk on the theme of assessment and evaluation for real world learning.
  • Professor Dai Hounsell, University of Edinburgh.  His keynote will focus on the reconfiguration of feedback to students in 21st century mass higher education.

Cost: £90.  For further details and to register, see website.
