Leading change in assessment and feedback

Hounsell, D and Rigby, S (2013) Leading change in assessment and feedback. Leadership Foundation for Higher Education.


Within the growing literature on management and leadership in higher education the topic of strategic change in the area of student assessment and feedback has hitherto been the focus of little attention. This paper is a contribution to remedying that gap. First, it reviews the distinctive challenges that assessment and feedback poses because practices and procedures (which must accommodate disciplinary needs and purposes) are, to a significant extent, devolved to departments and schools. Second, it presents three case examples of strategic initiatives for enhancing assessment and feedback. Third, it highlights a set of questions that may need to be addressed in pursuing initiatives of this kind.
