Confident Assessment in Higher Education

January 2023 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Your perfect companion to building confident assessment in teaching and learning in higher education.

Assessment is a central part of teaching and learning in higher education and an area in which many university teachers lack confidence.

Designed to work across academic disciplines, this is a practical, theory-informed resource for anyone in the higher education sector. It offers an in-depth view of assessment, exploring current practice and contemporary challenges. It offers guidance on contextual assessment design and the teaching that can support this, alongside a deep dive on marking, feedback and common assessment challenges.

The final third of the book offers practical templates for a wide range of common assessment types including case studies, competence portfolios, essays and dissertations.

Rachel Forsyth is an educational developer who works at Lund University, Sweden.
