#reflection on Progamme Focussed Assessment

What did I learn today? About PFA – Programme Focussed Assessment, here http://www.pass.brad.ac.uk/short-guide.pdf
How was it useful? It talks about assessing “across” a programme and not keeping all modules completely separate, in other words, show the students the rationale behind the modules that are being taught to them.
What thoughts came up ? I like the idea and on our courses we always try to do cross-modular assessment but I think we should do more as it would help the students and help us.
What did I learn? Despite our best efforts to co-ordinate assesments during semester there is always a rush at the end, the worst time really as it is coming up to exam time also.
What will I do with the information i.e. what next? raise it at the next programme board meeting and see if we can agree some CMA’s for the coming academic year.
