Effective learning and teaching involve the integration and alignment of three core elements, namely curriculum, facilitation practices and learning interactions1, and assessment. In this context, ensuring alignment between course outcomes, content, learning interactions and assessment is important for curricular coherence, and contributes to the validity and reliability of assessments. Consequently, there is a need for academics to appreciate the role assessment plays in students’ achievement of structured learning outcomes, and to be able to design quality assessments for specific contexts. In addition to the need for understanding assessment practices, more generally, there is a growing need to understand and know how to develop different types of assessment in the online space. In response to this need, the Centre for Learning Teaching and Development (CLTD) at Wits has developed this fully online short course on assessment with special focus on assessment in the digital space.
