Abstract

This special edition of Practitioner Research in Higher Education emanates from papers presented at the 5th International Assessment in Higher Education Conference (https://aheconference.com/ahe-conference-2015) held in Birmingham, England, during June 2015. The biennial conference brought together practitioners and researchers to share their work and discuss current issues; aiding our understanding and the development of practice of assessment in higher education. The wide range of assessment areas explored at the conference included institutional change, diversity and inclusion, programme level assessment, students’ experiences of and responses to assessment and the assessment literacy of students and tutors. Master classes and keynote presentations by acknowledged experts in the field were complemented by papers and interactive posters from delegates. This provided a wealth of evidence that explored issues at national, institutional and grass-roots levels across many disciplines and phases. Presenters challenged current practices while offering developments to assessment policy and practice that would benefit higher education learners, leaders and teachers. International commonalities and variations in assessment were brought to the fore through the work of colleagues from Ireland, USA, Italy, Canada, Mexico, Australia, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, South Africa, Denmark, Vietnam, Spain, Sweden, Croatia, Norway, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Japan, Austria, New Zealand, Belgium and England. The range and diversity of the conference’s discussion continues within the 17 articles presented here.
