Assessment matters

Lesley Matthews

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This guide is intended as an introduction to current debates and issues in good assessment practice in higher education. It does not claim in any sense to be comprehensive - which would require several volumes, given the rapid expansion of research into assessment issues over recent years - but rather attempts to introduce some of the key debates around both the purposes of assessment and aspects of good practice in assessment, as identified and explored in recent research. It raises questions as much as it supplies answers, with the intention of encouraging tutors to think more carefully and deeply about the purpose and nature of their assessment activities.
