The Center for Educational Development welcomes you to attend a series of workshops: LTU’s Pedagogical Principles in Action. In this workshop we look closer at assessment.

Assessment has a big impact on student learning. By making strategic choices about how students’ skills and knowledge are assessed, it is possible to guide their efforts and attention. In this workshop we will present an overview of research findings to determine how the form, frequency and level of assessment impact both how teaching is carried out and students’ learning outcomes. We will present and discuss different forms and types of assessment and discuss how they can be adapted to suit the needs of different disciplines.
