Stage 4: Assessing Students' Learning Development

TASK: What assignments might you use to assess each of the learning outcomes (or capabilities to be developed) that you identified at stage 2.


You might find it helpful to refer to the section on "Designing Assignments to Assess Adaptive Learning Capabilities" in Part 1. Consider when and who should make the assessment, how the assessment might be reported back to the learner, and what the learner might then do to improve. For an existing course (stage 3), compare the scores in columns B with those in C. Where there is significant difference, decide upon and note down a change to the course assessment approach that would be likely lead to more effective assessment of the characteristic or ability.
