Description: In engineering and technology, whilst assessments will typically include conceptual knowledge tests, the core assessments are of performance. Can the student tackle and solve the problem and build an imaginative and convincing prototype solution? Assessment then includes the portfolio of development as well as the fully evaluated prototype solution. There are three challenges for any assessment: (i) that it should be valid, ie it should measure what it purports to measure; (ii) that it should be reliable, ie repeatable … so that different judges arrive at the same outcome; (iii) that it should be manageable, ie do-able in the studio/workshop/exam hall. Too often the demands of reliability and manageability force faculty towards multiple choice testing and this invariably compromises validity. Project work assessment boasts higher validity, but reliability is problematic – even when using extensive rubrics. In the last 10 years, research has shown the value of comparative judgement as
