First meeting of Assessors SIG is on August 9

23 July 2019

BATA has set up an Assessors Special Interest Group (SIG) to provide a forum for everyone involved in assessment.

There will be an inaugural meeting on August 9 at 10am. Anyone interested should register here.

“With technology and support programmes changing at a fast pace, it is vital that those involved in assessment keep up-to-date with the latest trends,” says Jodie Parkes, mastermind of the new group.

Parkes says the group will identify areas were DSA and other programmes are not working well and seek more guidance on what and what is not acceptable. The Assessors SIG will produce a guidance document for students and their advisors. There will be regular meetings by video conference.

The SIG will develop assessor specific threads and a searchable archive of threads comments and suggestions. The SIG will become a hub for collaboration between assessors.
