Fwd: Assimilate Masters Level assessment confernce 12th July 2011

Just ten places left  at  this event, designed to disseminate the interim outcomes of my NTFS project, investigating how HEIs in the UK, and internationally, assess in Masters level programmes.

To date little research has been done in this field and so this research project was designed to discover particularly what kinds of innovative approaches are being used at this level. At a time of high global competitiveness, universities which can offer Masters level courses with authentic and engaging assessment systems are likely to have market advantage.

An additional feature of the conference will be the opportunity for delegates to participate directly in the ongoing NTFS project via a Q-sort exercise. Q methodology offers a theoretical basis for modelling the diversity of perspectives on Masters level assessment. Q sorting, the data collection technique, and Q factor analysis, a procedure for subsequent analysis of the data collected, will be used to interpret different constructs underpinning thinking in the area.

The conference will also include a keynotes by me and Professor Pauline Kneale, together with discussions and a plenary.

The conference is strictly limited to 60 delegates. To register for the conference, please complete the booking form. Queries should be directed to
