    Streamlining Assessment

    UNSW Medicine & Health's Streamlining Assessment series has been created to explore the purpose of and issues surrounding assessment of students at the Faculty.

    In line with the Health 25 Strategy, the Medicine & Health aims to enhance and streamline assessment cross all schools, programs and courses.

    The objectives of this initiative are to ensure that assessment is:​​​​​​​

    1. ​​​​​​​robust, valid, and fairly evaluates students’ performance and learning outcomes
    2. conducted in a way that minimises stress, anxiety and burden to students and staff
    3. an effective tool that enhances students’ learning.


    The Faculty Assessment Development and Evaluation committee (FADE) has developed a series of webinars as the first steps towards achieving these objectives. Each webinar will provide clear and practical guidance on how to make assessment effective, valid and less stressful for students and staff.

    ​​​​​​​There are four webinars in the series:

    1. The future of assessment
    2. Assessment – it’s all about the balance<
    3. Assessment literacy - from principles to practice
    4. Feedback, feed-forward & enhancing learning
