Authentic assessment for remote learning: Best practices for design and measuring success (THE Live Asia 2020)

Turnitin hosts a panel discussion on authentic assessment in higher education, covering best practices for assessment design at scale and how to measure success

Our roundtable panel discussion ‘Authentic Assessment for remote learning. Best practices for design and measuring success’ was a crowd-pleaser at the recent Times Higher Education Live Asia 2020 virtual event.

A key takeaway was that a paradigm shift in education is dependent on a mindset shift by faculty, in order to reach ‘next generation’ assessments that improve on quality and authenticity for students.

Here’s a recap of what we covered:

Recent global events have reinforced the need for authentic assessments to bolster learning outcomes, and put a spotlight on higher education institutions to ensure they are cultivating ‘job-ready’ students.

This roundtable panel discussion explores different perspectives on the design and delivery of authentic assessments to address the important issues of how to measure success, inform future iteration, and reimagine/rethink courses during the uplift process.

Discussion focus areas:

  • Main educator challenges in authentic assessment design
  • Using student perceptions of assessment to inform its design
  • The extent to which technology guides assessment strategy
  • Key elements that make for a successful delivery of authentic assessment
  • Measuring the success of assessment design and the role of a student feedback loop
