Assessment Ecosystem

Reliable and efficient assessment management is integral to ensuring consistent and fair assessment practices at Curtin. This project will focus on improving the electronic management of assessment workflows (e.g. marking online, automated collation of results); and streamlining the current labour-intensive processes associated with Assessment Quality Panel (AQP) reporting.

In the longer term, the project will seek to move toward electronic-based examinations.

2016 Project Outcome

The project has completed improvements to the Assessment Quality Process. Further work will be carried out for the duration of 2016 to improve data integrity.

Achievements

Improvements to the Assessment Quality Process have been implemented including improvements to the survey tool and the development of dynamic, easily accessible reports allowing assessment quality information to be reviewed at multiple levels within the institution.

Feedback has been positive, with schools reporting that AQP data is now easier to access and view, and that the process assists schools to engage in reflective teaching practices in order to continuously improve.
