Collaboration on Assessment Criteria and Standards Schemes
The Collaboration on Assessment Criteria and Standards Scheme (CoACSS) resource was developed at ACU by Dr. Vince Geiger (team leader), Rachel Jacobs, Dr. Janeen Lamb, and Associate Professor Judith Mulholland as part of a movement in education that recognises assessment as an integral part of the learning process. The resource is evidence based and relies on the analysis of student data. The CoACSS project also draws on scholarly literature and other resources that focus on assessment. There are several key features of the CoACSS resource. The resource outlines the design and use of Criteria and Standards Schemes (CSS) to support descriptions of tasks or assignments. The resource has several interactive assessment examples. An annotated bibliography of key articles and relevant documents is provided. An overview of the research design and findings is also available. Please contact the research team if you have questions related to CoACSS.
