According to Price et al (2012), studies have shown that assessment literacy improves students’ assessed performance especially in their desire to improve. However it is just as vital that staff as well as students are assessment literate, but just telling them about assessment is unlikely to be effective (Boud, 2009). This conference presentation introduces the interventions undertaken at one Institution of Higher Education to develop staff assessment literacy.It has been designed to support delegates in their roles in developing of assessment literacy and to support them in addressing the current difficulties encountered with the assessment and feedback elements of the NSS.
