Writing assessment tasks

The key to writing assessment tasks for unit outlines is to keep the tasks simple, clear and reasonable in scope.

Assessment tasks should meet the learning outcomes for the unit, and provide a clear basis on which to judge student achievement across learning domains.

It is important to consult the VU Assessment for learning policy and the associated procedures when writing assessment tasks. These procedures set out the minimum expectations regarding assessment.
