Please join the CRADLE Seminar Series to hear from Professor Lambert Schuwirth, Flinders University, on views of programmatic assessment. 

Programmatic assessment has gained popularity rapidly. That begs the question whether it is really a necessary development and an improvement to existing practices or just a fad that will disappear as rapidly as it has come. Whether programmatic assessment is the answer to the many problems with traditional assessment in modern education remains to be seen. It is certainly not a single method or a silver bullet, but it is a set of principles underlying assessment design. These principles seek to make assessment more meaningful for the provision of feedback and more credible in the support of high-stakes decisions.

Programmatic assessment is therefore not the same as assessment for learning, but the two have some logical links. In this presentation, I will explore how programmatic assessment addresses some of the major concerns with traditional assessments and how it therefore aligns better with current views on education.

Prof Lambert Schuwirth obtained his MD from Maastricht University. In 1991, he joined the Department of Educational Development and Research there, taking up various roles in student assessment: Chairman of the Inter-university and the Local Progress Test Review Committee, the OSCE Review Committee and the Case-based Testing Committee. Since the early 2000s, he has been Chair of the overall Taskforce on Assessment. He has been advisor on assessment to medical colleges in the Netherlands and the UK. In 2010, he chaired an international consensus group on educational research, the results of which were published in Medical Teacher. Since 2007, he has been a full-professor for Innovative Assessment at Maastricht University until 2019. In 2011, he was made a Strategic Professor for Medical Education at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia and is also the Chair of the Flinders University Prideaux Discipline of Clinical Education.
