Description: In engineering and technology, assessments typically include conceptual knowledge tests, while core assessments are of performance. Assessment then includes the development portfolio as well as the fully evaluated prototype solution. There are three challenges for assessment: (i) that it should be valid, ie, 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 doable 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. Participants will experience the comparative judging process using existing portfolios to arrive at a rank of quality and - in discussion - we will consider the application of this methodology in education. **Participants should bring personal laptops to fully participate in the workshop activities.**
