Assessing Skills and Practice outlines how to ensure fair, consistent and reliable assessment of practical activities.

  • assessing across the arts, humanities and sciences – from labwork and clinical practice to dance
  • assessing oral work
  • using feedback
  • ensuring inclusive and fair assessment.
