Exploring innovative assessment methods

Week 4: Implement and evaluate your innovative assessment


Just because you don’t follow the yellow brick road does not mean that the road you are on won’t lead you to the same destination.

This week you will be looking at different methods of assessment that still lead to the achievement of learning outcomes albeit with the use of different pathways. You will consider how you can align the storyboard activity that you created in Week 3 with an innovative assessment for learners. Remember, the assessment for the learner does not have to be summative – you do not have to use the assessment that you create as a determination of an overall grade. Equally, you should note that your innovative assessment can be used for the assessment of learning where it is appropriate.

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

  • align a learner storyboard with an innovative assessment
  • align your assessment to the curriculum
  • assess where a subject lies in a national qualification framework
  • evaluate your idea.
