Assessment and standards for graduate outcomes

Leigh N Wood, Theda Thomas, Brendan Rigby

Abstract


Assessment drives what students learn and standards drive industry. In this paper we link the two and describe how we developed robust, practical standards for graduate skills that can be used to design learning tasks and rubrics to assess learning tasks. They act also as a clear statement to students about expectations for their learning as well as to industry on the standard of the graduates that universities are delivering.
