The Sharing Online Assessment Project (SOAP) is an initiative of the Assessment Framework Working Group (AFWG). The project aims to establish a collection of assessment practices that was offered in Term 2 of the Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT) period. The reasons for doing so are to:
Collect examples of practices that were considered to reflect sound practice (or even better than practice under “normal” circumstances) to inspired enhanced assessment practice for future assessment guidance at UCT
Share and reflect on examples where assessment did not work as planned or resulted in questions about soundness of results to stimulate reflection to enhance future practice
Develop an understanding of the ecosystem of (online) assessment practices at UCT
Deepen the analysis of student performance in Term 2 through qualitative insights
To this end, 23 case studies were collected across six faculties. The case studies were collected through a survey via AFWG representations with follow-up interviews conducted by CILT staff between September 2020 and January 2021. The case studies were analysed and categorised into four assessment purposes or intentions.
Case studies will continue to be added.
