This Forum Insight aims to expand our understanding of the terms associated with assessment within the Irish higher education sector. It is the result of a number of national conversations organised by the National Forum with staff and students across the sector regarding how assessment might be defined and understood within an Irish context. It is part of a series of Insights in the Forum’s Assessment OF/FOR/AS Learning enhancement theme.

Since March 2020 higher education has experienced one of the most disruptive phases in its recent history. In a sector typified by considered, researched and incremental change, overnight everyone began emergency remote teaching, learning and assessing. The dramatic shift resulted in positives and negatives, and posed a series of questions for students, staff and other stakeholders. Though still living through the pandemic, in March 2021 fifteen partners from a range of stakeholders across the sector agreed to work together to answer one shared persistent and urgent question: In the context of Covid-19, what have we learnt and what does it mean for the future of teaching and learning in Irish higher education?

The Fledgling Project reviewed assessment and feedback strategies of a final year early childhood studies professional practice placement in which students create and run a community-based parent and toddler group. A student practical guide was developed which includes feedback/guidance from past students, graduates, parents and employers.
