Programmatic Assessment: An Overview of Approaches in UK Higher Education
Liam Brady University of Aberdeen, UK
Transforming the Experience of Students Through Assessment (TESTA) has been introduced across many UK universities as a method of programmatic review. It shifts the focus from individual modules to assessment and feedback practices across an entire degree. Utilizing TESTA methodology allows for programs to highlight areas of overassessment, lack of formative use, and any overlap of assessment types between modules. This poster presents a comparative content analysis of TESTA and similar variations including IPA (Integrated Program Assessment, Brunel University), LEAF (Leading Enhancement in Assessment and Feedback, University of Edinburgh) and PASS (Programme Assessment Strategies, University of Bradford).
