The careful design of online assessment tasks and processes is critical to ensuring that the eventual assessment is valid, reliable, flexible and fair. Importantly the design of assessment tasks should be considered up front in the process not as an afterthought.
This section of The Guide will assist you to take into account important design considerations. It will also provide you with some examples of how others have approached this task and provide some tools to assist you.
You can have a look at how each case study addressed the design stage.
