Abstract

Assessment is a fundamental ingredient in the teaching and learning process, yet there is an increasing body of literature expressing dissatisfaction with current assessment policy and practices in higher education that challenges the appropriateness of assessment to address the future needs of students in a rapidly changing information rich environment. The paper will provide a framework for designing assessment with social software and a examples of options for alternative, authentic assessment methods that collect and organise evidence of learning, suggesting that this process can foster the development of self-directed learners, resulting in discretely embedded learning activities that promote problem-solving and knowledge development beyond the boundaries of the classroom and institution.
