Neil Currant Assessment Task Type- Variety or Familiarity?
There are good reasons for having a variety of assessment task types but also good reasons for allowing familiarity of task type and limiting variety. This virtual conference evaluation looks at two modules, one with a focus on variety and one with a focus on familiarity in assessment task type. Based on the evidence from the two modules there is a good case for getting a balance between the variety and familiarity in assessment task type. What is also highlighted is that both can work when students get timely and relevant feedback.
