About

In 2017, Lynn Taylor, University of Calgary Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning), and Gabrielle Lindstorm performed an extensive literature review about assessment in post-secondary education. Their findings were summarized in a discussion paper, which is soon to be available as a guide from the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning. Their review summarized effective assessment into a series of guiding principles. These principles are broad and not discipline or method specific. They can be used at any level or in any subject. The background literature and specific examples of how these principles translate into practice are currently being collected and compiled for this website. New strategies are added regularly, so keep checking back as we continue to build this website.
