Trends in assessment: An overview of themes in the literature
This report outlines findings from a literature review of trends in assessment policy and practice, carried out in June and July 2018. Funded by the Ministry of Education (the Ministry), the primary purpose for this work is to inform the Ministry as they are considering updating their position on assessment. This was last articulated in the position paper titled Assessment (Schooling Sector) 2011 (Ministry of Education, 2011). This paper drew on a paper commissioned by the Ministry, titled Directions for Assessment in New Zealand (DANZ): Developing students’ assessment capabilities (Absolum, Flockton, Hattie, Hipkins, & Reid, 2009).
