Writing assessment tasks
The main goal when writing your assessment tasks is to ensure they have clear and cohesive instructions, and that the questions or prompts are written in a way that carefully guides students through the assessment task. Ensuring clarity in the way the task is communicated to students is also vital.
This guide will assist you in developing well-written assessment tasks that include clear and cohesive questions and prompts. For assistance with which assessment tasks may work best for your unit, please refer to the Types of Assessment page.
