The focus of this chapter is on how to encourage the take-up of advances in assessment and feedback practices across and beyond one university, in ways that can bridge subject and organisational boundaries while avoiding top-down prescription and maintaining respect for scholarly autonomy. Against the wider backdrop of key issues that institutions need to grapple with in scaling up assessment renewal constructively, the chapter discusses a communities-of-practice initiative at the University of ...

Contemporary research-intensive universities need not only to maintain but also to enhance the quality of their teaching and learning. Diverse strategies are used to raise the quality of teaching and learning, and these typically respond to both institutional and disciplinary cultures. However, there is sometimes a failure to effectively integrate quality enhancement initiatives at the individual (micro) level, the intermediate (meso) level, and the institutional (macro) level within institution...

This book uses theory and empirical research to explore changing perspectives and innovations in assessment. Our understanding of the purposes of assessment and the nature of assessment practices in higher education has changed markedly over the past 40 years. These changes are a response not only to recent developments in our understanding of student learning but also to the demands a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world places on students. This book collects new perspectives on asse...

Within the growing literature on management and leadership in higher education the topic of strategic change in the area of student assessment and feedback has hitherto been the focus of little attention. This paper is a contribution to remedying that gap. First, it reviews the distinctive challenges that assessment and feedback poses because practices and procedures (which must accommodate disciplinary needs and purposes) are, to a significant extent, devolved to departments and schools. Second...

A question can be asked of every sector or level of education which seems both straightforward yet fundamental: what is it that the students learn as a result of their experiences? And in higher education, where participation is optional rather than compulsory and where there is not a set curriculum but a superabundance of subject areas and course combinations that transmute in countless ways from one university to another, the question becomes a particularly salient one. A common form of respon...
