Survey on undergraduate assessment practices at UCT

09 November 2021 | DVC A/Prof Lis Lange

Dear colleagues

As you know, assessment is a perennial point of discussion and concern in teaching and learning. Teaching under the COVID-19 pandemic has raised issues about assessment with renewed urgency.

The University of Cape Town (UCT) set up the Assessment Framework Working Group (AFWG) as part of the work of the Teaching and Learning Committee of Senate before COVID-19, which will continue operating into 2023.

UCT staff involved in undergraduate teaching are invited to complete a short survey about their assessment practices. The purpose of this survey is to provide a clearer picture of the range of assessment practices that can be found across UCT.

The survey should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete.

The AFWG is led by Professor Alan Cliff and includes members of the Centre for Higher Education Development (CHED) and the Faculty of Health Sciences’ Education Development Unit. The project continues until 2023 and is focused on improving the practice of assessment at undergraduate level across all faculties with a view to improving learning outcomes for all students.
