Abstract

Assessment of a student’s performance on a particular module may often be thought of as a single evaluation of the extent to which the student has met some or all of the module’s learning outcomes. More helpfully, however, when there is more than one assessment task in a particular module, it may be thought of as the combination of different assessment tasks (whatever the weighting attached to each of them). In this sense, the level of agreement between performances on the different tasks may elucidate the nature of overall student performance further still. Typically, assessment tasks within a module tend not to be of the same kind; often they are complementary, sometimes through the use of different media. The primary aim of the present study was to investigate agreement in student performance between assessment tasks within two modules.
