This presentation briefly introduces two useful open access online tools for reviewing Assessment in Higher Education at institutional level (A marked Improvement) and at programme level (TESTA). The presentation then goes on to highlight critical issues within current approaches to enhancing assessment practice in higher education. These issues include the general overemphasis on institutional procedures rather than focusing on the quality of student work. They also include the problem that tightly defined 'measurable' learning outcomes may represent the cutting edge of high accountability Neoliberal educational policy and encourage strategic approaches to learning by students.
