Gateway to Digital Assessment: Partners in Learning

Funded by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning

National Forum for Teaching and Learning

Digital assessment is assessment made possible through digital technologies (JISC 2010). It requires students to apply different skills than they would in traditional assessments and can lead assessors to rethink how and why they assess. Gateway to Digital Assessment supports digital learning at Trinity by enabling the development of a shared understanding of digital assessment between staff and students. 

Aligning with the Trinity Strategic Plan 2020-25: Community and Connection which commits to ‘next-generation teaching and learning practices’ (3.8) and a students as ‘partners in learning’ approach (3.3) , key project outputs include a suite of research-informed programmes, both for-credit and self-directed, and an online resource hub for staff and students, designed with students. The Gateway to Assessment hub also enables the growth and open dissemination of the project outputs beyond the project’s lifecycle and, we hope, beyond Trinity.
