Assessment drives, creates, and ensures learning, yet we often use methods and processes that are seriously flawed. In this workshop, we will describe our top 10 assessment flaws. Included will be problems such as the misalignment of purpose and method, failure to create a blueprint, misuse of scores, lack of reliability, and failure to apply a rational standard-setting process. For each flaw, we will propose remedies intended to improve the quality of individual methods and the assessment system as a whole.
