New opportunities: re-imagining assessment in a digital world
In October 2017, Professor David Boud and CRADLE staff hosted two days of high-level research conversations on the topic of ‘New opportunities: re-imagining assessment in a digital world’.
The symposium explored how assessment for learning can be refreshed and redesigned in a digital landscape. The symposium explored the questions of:
- What are the assessment and feedback challenges that we can now address more readily?
- What can we now conceive of in assessment that was previously beyond our imagination?
- What research agendas do we need to explore these new opportunities? How can we move from exciting innovation to routine practice?
The symposium and the associated book, Re-imagining Assessment in a Digital World, provides a different way of thinking about assessment in a digital world. It considers how technologies and assessment can be more than the sum of their parts.
