Advance HE Teaching & Learning Conference 2018: Assessments: The purpose versus the perception

Assessments are incorporated in the creation of courses with a specific intention to benefit the student but an unanswered question remains: Is the intention of the assessment understood by the students completing the assignment? This research questions whether understanding the intent of the task increases engagement effort and subsequently final score. Creating the connection between lecturer intent and student perception will be discussed in relation to the current study and the session will conclude with a learner-centered teaching approach in designing and giving assignments urging HE professionals to consider the benefits of this.
