Register for the conversation Outline 

  • In 2021, assessment is evolving - because it is catching up with rapidly changing delivery, expectations, and student behaviour. Overnight, COVID deepened the wounds of financial pressure, anxiety, and wellbeing, and weakened sense of belonging. As such, there are more opportunities than ever before for students to engage in unethical behaviour - to cheat. Does the answer lie in a fundamental rethink of assessment? Can it be transitioned from an act of compliance, to an integrated part of students’ learning?
