Students as Partners in Assessment: A Literature Scoping Review - Dublin City University


A project at Dublin City University (DCU) called “Students as Partners in Assessment” sought to explore how and why students should be engaged as partners in their own assessment experiences. This literature scoping review is the foundation of this project. It sought to explore what exists in the literature relating to student partnership in assessment and what forms it can take. Following a structured search, selection and refinement process, 14 core papers were identified. These are summarised and themed in the literature review. This literature review was launched in winter 2020 as part of the SaPiA project, and its impact will be evaluated as part of the wider project evaluation.
