Assessment and Learning, two of a kind?


Testing and assessment is something every teacher has to do. For many it is not the most rewarding task: it is a lot of work and the outcome is not always appreciated by the students. We often use testing and assessment to find out what students have learned, so assessment of learning. But what can we really say when we have the results of the test? Can we use testing and assessment in other ways as well, like assessment for learning? In his presentation Frank will address a few common conceptions regarding testing and assessment, raise some critical questions on our current way of assessment and share some examples of alternative forms of assessment.

Students as Partners in Assessment (SaPiA)


Engaging students as partners in their learning journey is a powerful tool that benefits both students and academics. Partnership opportunities empower students by engaging and motivating them to take ownership and responsibility for their learning. These are attributes that contribute to successful assessment, evidenced in quality assessment outputs that authentically showcase the efficacy of students’ achievement. The literature demonstrates that partnering students in assessment does not have to be complex. Moreover, evidence demonstrates that when students are partners in the assessment process academic integrity is enhanced. This presentation will help to de-mystify some of the partnership concerns and challenges, and perhaps help you validate your existing assessment practice as a type partnership model.

This work developed out of an Erasmus+ project on Promoting Academic Integrity. Dublin City University (DCU) Teaching Enhancement Unit (TEU) worked on this project from 2016- late 2020. A suite of resources and supports was developed for use by academics to help design assessments that promote academic integrity. Student ownership is a key element in this endeavor, as evidenced in the Academic Integrity Principles for Assessment Design.

Work from the Erasmus+ project was further developed through a Student as Partners in Assessment (SaPiA) initiative. SaPiA was funded in part by quality improvement (QUID) funding from DCU Quality Promotion Office in 2020-21. In addition to expanding work from the Erasmus+ project, SaPiA drew on existing work from the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning and the National Student Engagement Programme. Outputs from SaPiA include a scoping literature review, infographic resource which helps influence academics to partner students. We are currently analysing some data from the first pilot of this resource and will be able to share early findings with this audience.
