Project

This Australian Research Council funded project investigates the feasibility of using digital representation of student work on tasks, with online repositories, and the paired comparison judgements method of marking to assess the performance components of courses. This addresses the need for authentic and reliable high-stakes assessment of performance for senior secondary courses in Western Australia. Current traditional assessments fail to adequately assess performance and therefore teaching and assessment tend to focus on non-performance outcomes. The study investigates four different models over three years, starting with a proof of concept through to testing the potential for state-wide implementation.
