Digital Assessment: Expanding the Repertoire


This resource is intended to prompt reflection on the breadth of potential assessment activity that can be used across the disciplines. Consider how your assessment strategy enables students to demonstrate their achievement of one or more learning outcomes and whether assessment activity is adequately aligned with workload.

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

“The vast majority of assessments explored in this resource can be seen as ‘digital’ assessments, whether digitally inflected (e.g. traditional assessment practices now enabled through digital technologies), assessments which are defined through their use of digital technology, or assessments moved into the digital context in response to Covid-19 restrictions (e.g. staged in digital rather than in f2f/physical space).The assessment methods and practices outlined here can be used either summatively, e.g. a mark/grade contributing to progression or a degree is to be awarded, and/or formatively, e.g. not-for- credit, to inform and support student learning or for feedback alone. Some of the practices shared can also be used diagnostically to evaluate and take the pulse of student learning in real-time, (e.g. enabling you to respond to student needs).”
