Creating an agenda for developing students’ evaluative judgement

ByDavid Boud, Phillip Dawson, Joanna Tai, Rola Ajjawi

What practical directions can be taken to develop students’ evaluative judgement? Such processes involve more than adding activities into the curriculum. They require repositioning how students become graduates, how courses are structured, and what constitutes progression from one level of sophistication to another. This chapter examines the role of assessment in supporting the development of evaluative judgement; how it can contribute to students judging their own work and that of others; and how peers, educators and others can contribute to this process.
