What is good assessment?

We are all aware of the saying ‘assessment drives learning’ but unless the assessment is carefully designed, evaluated and continuously improved the effects may not all be good.  This presentation considers the purposes of assessment and provides a framework for thinking about what contributes to the value of an assessment.

Writing Module Learning Outcomes and Programme Learning Outcomes of international standard.

This presentation will consider best practice in designing learning outcomes for short courses (modules) and for programmes in the areas of the five domains of the NQF of Lithuania. In addition, it will give an overview of the basic principles of programme design and modularisation involving the mapping of module learning outcomes on to programme learning outcomes.

Workshop on review of programmes.*

In this Workshop participants will have the opportunity to review documentation on a programme that is currently being taught in their institution. They will get the opportunity to appraise the programme design and gain practice mapping the module learning outcomes on to the programme learning outcomes.

An overview of different types of teaching, learning and assessment.

Module and programme leads need to choose assessments to match their teaching and learning but there is a bewildering array of new methods of teaching, learning and assessment at our disposal.  This session will give an overview of these methods, focusing on some of the newer ones.

Linking Learning Outcomes to Teaching and Learning activities and to Assessment.

This presentation will discuss the importance of ensuring that module learning outcomes are linked to teaching and learning activities and also to assessment. A working method of showing how these three areas are correctly aligned will be explained and discussed. In addition, a mechanism for mapping the student grades to the legal framework domains will be outlined and discussed.

Workshop on Constructive Alignment.

In this workshop participants will be given the opportunity to work with samples of module learning outcomes and to design a strategy to ensure that constructive alignment is embedded in the programme documentation

– Professor Declan Kennedy and Professor Helen Cameron 

12:30 – 13:30

Lunch

 

 

13:30 – 14:15

The role of rubrics in making the assessment visible and clear. 

This presentation will introduce the concept and design of rubrics and will discuss their important role in describing students' level of performance. Many examples will be given to illustrate their usefulness and application in teaching, learning and assessment in higher education.

 – Professor Declan Kennedy

 

 

 

14:15 – 15:00

Designing good Multiple Choice Questions.

Single best answer multiple choice questions (MCQs) are increasingly used throughout healthcare, biomedical and science programmes. Using MCQs can save much time in the marking phase but they are costly and difficult to write, and if not carefully designed may contribute little to discriminating amongst the candidates.  This presentation will summarise the internationally recognised standard for writing and quality assuring MCQs.
