Abstract

Assessment can be a powerful tool in determining the type of skills and outcomes we wish our graduates to achieve. When the learning task is shared and the product is difficult to measure, as with collaborative or leadership skills in group work, assessment decisions are often contested. The Group Assessment Toolbox is a web-based resource for teachers setting assessable collaborative work for their students. The content of the toolbox is grounded in a collection of best practice case studies, linked to contemporary assessment theory. The initial content of the Toolbox relates to the disciplines of media, communication, design and performance, but it is planned to expand the case collection to include science, health and social science disciplines. This is a national project, based at the University of Canberra and funded by the Carrick Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education
