This session will ask delegates to reflect on their assessment practice and consider where students might experience stress and anxiety. Although some level of stress might be helpful in challenging students to develop and improve, we will ask which elements of assessment could be adapted or improved to remove unnecessary stressors or reduce the extent of student anxiety. Together we will explore strategies for improving student experience of assessment, and invite you to share your experiences and best practice within learning and teaching.
