Assessment in Higher Education.
Heywood, John
Assessment and examination in higher education are often questioned for their social consequences, and for their reliability. However, another matter of concern is the relationship of examination and assessment to the process of learning and teaching in institutions of higher education. Assessment procedures are an integral part of the learning process. In consequence, the educational objectives and the methods and results of assessment must be considered as integral to the instructional process as a whole. The implications of this approach for the derivation of aims and objectives, the design of assessment procedures, and the evaluation of courses is considered. There is need to develop multiple-objective approaches to the design of assessment and learning strategies, which strategies must be founded on defensible theories of knowing and learning.
