Abstract

This paper offers a fresh perspective on the bewildering business of assessment design. The Assessment Wheel is a tool to help practitioners discuss and debate assessment. It makes subtle and conflicting trade-offs and tensions in assessment design more explicit and discussable. The Wheel is firmly grounded in the literature on assessment in Higher Education. It is hoped that it might be adopted more widely as a teaching tool for new practitioners in Higher Education and to facilitate local communities of practice in developing and reviewing assessments.
