Description: Whilst project work assessment is appropriately seen as an ideal form of assessment, it is full of complexities, not least ensuring fairness and that students are working on a level playing field. It is understood that timed written examinations are based on the level playing field, but can the concept be stretched to include extended project work, where diverse portfolios become the focus of scrutiny? Can the creative process of engineering and design be captured in structured portfolios and assessed with sufficient precision (reliability) to allow awarding organizations to trust the assessment judgments being made. We shall explore the history of approaches to assessing project work and, with reference to theories of judgement-making, we will examine comparative judgement as a means for deriving high reliability with complex, multi-dimensional portfolios. The technical and user limits of the approach will be discussed.
