CRADLE Seminar Series: assessment and student identity formation

Event has expired!

Please note that this event has expired.

Join us to hear from Dr Juuso Nieminen on assessment and student identity using inclusion, belonging and disability justice perspectives.

In 1977, Derek Rowntree described assessment not simply as a mechanism for evaluating student work, but as an attempt to know a person. Rowntree’s provocative subtitle for his book Assessing Students asks: how shall we know them? In higher education, we indeed know our students precisely through assessment.

This presentation revisits this idea by setting the agenda of understanding assessment from the viewpoint of student identities. While assessment is most commonly introduced as a mechanism for evaluating student learning, the long-term effects of assessment on students’ identities have received less scholarly attention. As students take part in assessment situations in higher education, how are their identities shaped?
