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.
