The following will be addressed: context (including whether summative or formative, high stakes or low stakes); reliability and the importance of having assessment criteria and marking schemes; the importance of sampling and blueprinting; validity (including content, face, consequential and criterion validity); generalisability; standard setting; assessor training; and the importance of having a programme of assessment. Types of assessments which can be used are described, and these are illustrated with examples in the field of psychology.
