Collaboration across disciplinary boundaries offers new approaches to the wicked problems of our time … Good quality interdisciplinary education is therefore increasingly valuable for the graduates of the twenty first century. Assessment is a key part of this puzzle.
The Multiple Measures team has developed this online tool and website to inform the assessment design for your developing or delivered ID teaching. It includes a rich library of ID examples that can be searched using the filters that were developed in the project. The filters focus on the Student Cohort, Learning Outcomes, and Pedagogy. The tool will help you to find good comparators for benchmarking to inform your ID assessment design.
