Alan Masson visited us last month and gave a lecture explaining the Viewpoints assessment design process. Viewpoints is a highly successful JISC-funded project based at University of Ulster that helps lecturers reflect on and improve the assessment regimes of their courses. The beauty of it is that it’s low tech – merely sets of reminder cards and a design template – but it taps into individual creativity and seems to help teams reach real consensus swiftly and without being adversarial. It’s a very persuasive talk and will get you thinking in new ways about your students’ assessment.
