Chapter 2 Standards-Based Assessment for an Era of Increasing Transparency David Boud Abstract The macro policy context for assessment in higher education has changed to focus on explicit standards and learning outcomes. While different countries and institutions are at different stages of the process of reorienting assessment to become more directly standards based, the implications for assessment and learning are substantial.

Introduction With respect to assessment and feedback, universities across the world share a formidable challenge: how can they continue to ensure that their students thrive in authentic and engaging learning environments attuned to twenty-first-century needs? Addressing this challenge is far from straightforward, since three interlocking dilemmas need to be resolved. First, there is the need to strike a balance between local exigencies and emerging directions of travel globally. The aim, in other words, is to ensure on the one hand that developments in assessment within a given university go with the grain of disciplinary and institutional requirements and strategic goals, while on the other there is an openness to what might be learned from advances in practices in other universities, subject areas and national systems of higher education.
