Assessment and learning for the long term: what do graduates say?

Dr Jan McArthur, Senior Lecturer in Education and Social Justice, Department of Educational Research , Lancaster University

It is several years since Boud introduced the idea of sustainable assessment – assessment for long term learning. Boud and colleagues have since enhanced the concept with their work on students developing a capacity for evaluative judgement, which ideally supports them for continuing to engage with knowledge and learning in the years beyond graduation.

This presentation will discuss the extent to which we may, or may not, be achieving the goals of sustainable assessment, and the extent to which this is an issue of concern. Using data from an international longitudinal and comparative study of chemistry and chemical engineering, I will explore the ways in which these students reflect on their university assessment experiences in the years following graduation.
