Exploring innovative assessment methods

Week 3: Creating an innovative assessment


Developing an innovative assessment requires careful thought and visualisation of your ideas. This week you will use what you have learned from Weeks 1 and 2 to help you to begin this process. This week is designed to be quite practical, so you will actually start creating an innovative assessment for your learners.

By the end of this week, you should be able to:

  • consider how you can learn from the past and what lessons you can use in your work
  • apply useful case studies to help you to create a problem statement; write a context description; and present a recipe for a solution
  • begin to create a storyboard for your idea and make your innovative assessment a reality for your learners.
