Assessment and Feedback

Assessment, credentialling and recognition in the digital era: Recent developments in a fertile field

Sandra Milligan, Gregor E Kennedy and David Israel (2018)

The authors report and comment on findings from a survey, undertaken in 2016 on behalf of the University of Melbourne, of some of the most prominent and/or innovative developments in post-school online assessment and credentialling, focusing particularly on uses of digital technologies and their application in the continuing professional development sector. Drawing on a series of case studies and ‘snapshots’, they identify ten emergent themes and conclude that many questions remain to explore, especially relating to whether or not, and how, digital technologies will support productive reforms to learning and assessment in schools and other institutions.
