Student Assessment in Higher Education
By:Allen Horace Miller,Bradford William Imrie,Kevin Cox
Published on 1998 by Psychology Press

Assessment plays an important role in improving learning, and this comprehensive book is designed to provide university teachers with an overview of the many approaches to setting, marking and reviewing coursework, assignments, tests and examinations. The authors aim to demonstrate the strong influence that assessment has on the way students approach their learning tasks and to highlight the importance of investigating how assessment is used in practice. In the light of the Dearing Report, it is now recognized that more emphasis should be placed on formative assessment as a means of improving learning, the type of skills required by assessors in higher education, and the support teachers require to achieve such skills. This handbook will be invaluable to all teachers involved in higher education, especially those who are dissatisfied with the assessment procedures they are using for setting and marking assignments, examinations and theses. Educational administrators, course developers and researchers will also find this a comprehensive review of research on the subject.
