The Review of Assessment has been pursuing a range of themes, amongst which features the development of a more diverse range of ‘authentic’ assessment methods. Greater authenticity would contribute to students’ employability by giving their prior experience of a greater range of activities more likely to be used by graduate employers in the workplace. In addition, diversification would enable students to make a deliberate choice to be assessed by a broader range of tools, thereby learning more of their own skills and attributes. Diversification would have institutional benefits too, in reducing pressure on traditional examinations (and venues) and models of marking which vastly increase pressure upon academic staff at specific times of year.
