Abstract in Undetermined

Assessments of students’ knowledge and skills are sometimes habitually performed, but the design of proper assessment concepts – beneficial to both teaching and learning – ought to be a central issue for all course planners in higher education.

The study reveals a preference for projects and written assessment, as compared with the less preferred individual oral assessment. The paper indicates potential for quality enhancements through the adapted tailoring of assessment elements into holistic assessment concepts. (Less)
