high quality assessment
- Assessments must be reliable, valid and fair.
- Assessments are fair when they offer everyone an equal opportunity to demonstrate learning and an equal opportunity to learn.
- Assessments are fair when they are based on transparent criteria that students know an advance.
- Assessments are reliable when the assessment results remain consistent irrespectively of the examiner or the context. An assessment is reliable when a student who takes two different versions of the test gets approximately the same result on both occasions.
- Assessments are valid when they measure the competence that they claim to measure and when there are no external/additional competences that interfere with the performance of students.
