This workshop aims to discuss experiences of and views of digital assessment on student learning, student-teacher relationships and the role of digital assessment tools in post-COVID higher educational settings.
During the past few years, it has been a fast move to digital assessment practices across higher educational institutions across countries, including Sweden. Digital assessment practices seek to conduct summative and formative assessments central to student learning and output.
In particular, our interest in assessment has been renewed during the COVID-19 pandemic with the emergency transition to distance and online education that required us to enable different approaches to assessment to meet the needs of different stakeholders ( universities, students and teachers) involved in educational practices. Although some insights are gained from formatively and summatively assessing students, there are still open challenges related to technical, ethical, social, and policy aspects of digital assessment in higher education to overcome. This requires a systemic approach to the development of sound digital assessment practices that would lead to improved student learning.
We invite you to participate in this workshop to share insights and gain a new understanding of how meaningful and responsible assessment practices can be conducted with the emergence of novel technologies.
