Effective Assessment in a Digital Age
Materials are now available from the series of workshops based around the JISC Effective Assessment in a Digital Age publication. Find out more
Effective Assessment in a Digital Age is aimed at those in higher and further education who design assessment and feedback for their learners. The guide draws on recent JISC reports and case studies from different contexts and modes of learning to explore the relationship between technology-enhanced assessment and feedback practices and meaningful, well-supported learning experiences.
Effective Assessment in a Digital Age complements Effective Practice in a Digital Age, the 2009 JISC guide to learning and teaching with technology, and Effective practice with e-Assessment (JISC 2007) by focusing on the potential enhancement to assessment and feedback practices offered by both purpose-designed and more familiar technologies.
