Assessing Learning in Australian Universities: Ideas, Strategies, and Resources for Quality Student Assessment

Center for the Study of Higher Education

This site is the homepage for the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Melbourne, Australia. It provides a multitude of resources for responding effectively to new issues in student assessment. The ideas and strategies are focused on the practical educational issues surrounding the purposes and design of student assessment and reporting, in particular the way in which assessment might be planned to optimize student approaches to study. The site features reports on student assessment in higher education, links to real examples of effective assessment practices, core principles and practical guides to effective assessment strategies, and ready-to-use resources including Power Point presentations and PDF documents. Although the site is designed to support Australian universities and academic staff in maintaining high quality assessment practices, the resources provided are relevant for educators worldwide.
