In this course we examine traditional forms of testing and learn to design alternative forms of assessment. We will explore, design and implement a variety of assessment tools and tasks. We will also become aware of the various forms of self-assessment tools. Finally, we will look at the relationships between assessment, testing, teaching and learning.
