This chapter presents a conceptual framework for assessment. It summarizes some of the key concepts associated with assessment in the service of learning and develops the theoretical bases for the collection of practices which follow. The framework highlights three key concepts which underpin the collection: assessment tasks as leaning tasks; student involvement in assessment; and the notion of feedback as ‘feedforward’.

Keywords:   learning-oriented assessment, evaluator, learning outcomes, feedback
