Abstract

Traditionally, assessment in psychology degrees has relied on essays, practical reports and examinations. However, over recent years, many institutions have begun to explore and develop alternative forms of assessment with a greater emphasis on skills development. This report presents an evaluation of one such form of alternative summative assessment; the development and critique of an information leaflet. The assessment was evaluated using written feedback comments and a focus group. The findings of the evaluation suggest that this form of assessment is a useful and effective method of helping students to attain the learning outcomes required, whilst enhancing and broadening their skills and deepening their knowledge and understanding of a topic area.
