AHE is delighted to announce a collaboration with the Transforming Assessment webinar series. We will be offering online webinars in association with our face to face events in 2016 and 2017. To mark the beginning of the collaboration, Professor Sue Bloxham, who has led the development of the Assessment in Higher Education Conference, was the speaker at the Transforming Assessment webinar on Wednesday 4th November 2015.
118 people from the UK to Australia registered for the event which was run in conjunction with the Assessment in Higher Education Conference. Professor Sue Bloxham, from the AHE Executive Group presented her work on the topic of ‘ The multiple limitations of assessment criteria. It involved a discussion of the use of assessment criteria by experienced markers and drew on a recent study which identified five factors in the use of criteria that contribute to marking inconsistency. Lively debate took place using the webinar chat room on the implications for fairness, standards and guidance to students.
The recorded webinar is available on-line here. We hope that you will be able to join us for future webinars.
Sessions are hosted by Professor Geoffrey Crisp, Dean Learning and Teaching, RMIT University and Dr Mathew Hillier, Office of the Vice-Provost Learning and Teaching, Monash University, Australia.
