A pragmatic approach to designing and delivering authentic assessment tasks

In this workshop, building on the extensive resources Kay and Sally have created to support staff during pandemic times, (see https://sally-brown.net/kay-sambell-and-sally-brown-covid-19-assessment-collection/), we will review how effective and authentic assessment can be undertaken across the disciplines, with plenty of practical examples showing how participants at the workshop can readily and creatively implement these approaches at Huddersfield. Participants will have opportunities to:

  • Consider a practical six-stage approach to designing authentic and constructively-aligned assessment activities;
  • Review examples of authentic assessment tasks from across various disciplines;
  • Discuss how these kinds of approaches can be implemented at Huddersfield university
