Abstract

The need to make assessment an integral part of learning is an important consideration for teachers in higher education. Not only does assessment determine to a large extent what the students do in order to demonstrate the results of their studies, but it also makes a profound impact on the learning process. This has long been established in literature. For example, Brown et al (1997) argued that assessment creates a strong motivation to learning. Biggs (1996) advocates 'constructive alignment' between learning activities and learning outcomes, in which assessment plays a crucial role.
