Abstrakti

The aim of this chapter is to discuss the challenges related to the fairness and reliability of assessment. We will argue that using grades as reliable indicators of the quality of learning is problematic. The learning outcomes are assessed by varying and sometimes hidden criteria and thus grades do not necessarily mirror the learning in a reliable way. We will further argue that the fairness of assessment consists of two main characteristics: validity and reliability of assessment. Finally, we aim to emphasise that the fairness and reliability of assessment may be enhanced by using clear assessment criteria and by paying attention to congruence both at the course level as well as the institutional level.
