Towards A Paradigm Shift for A New Model of Alternative Assessment


To initiate discussion on a paradigm shift to a new assessment model, The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) and Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) are conceiving a project to try out some innovative assessment approaches in the coming academic year.

We hope that this project will be an active response to a learning environment where assessment is not only confined by subject domain knowledge but also its application. In such an environment, students often engage in inquiries into, and problem solving of, discipline-related scenarios. In the process, they put their subject domain knowledge to test, and develop generic competencies.

This website serves as a hub of project resources and latest news.

A sharing titled “Giving Feedback to Students” will be held on 13 April 2022 (2:30 – 3:45 pm).

Authentic or alternative assessments can be challenging to students. In many cases, the course instructors use a variety of ways to create room for students to receive and make sense of feedback. What are the keys to keep this give-and-take process efficient, especially in the online learning and teaching context? In this session, two Academic/ Teaching colleagues from HKBU and EdUHK will share their experience of designing authentic assessment and feedback for their students.
