This talk will explore approaches to reimagining assessment in the age of artificial intelligence. Effective assessment is the cornerstone of understanding and promoting student learning. Traditional methods like multiple-choice questions and essays have long served this purpose. However, the rise of generative AI technologies like ChatGPT, Gemini and DALL-E presents both challenges and opportunities for assessment. On the one hand, AI raises concerns about the integrity of traditional assessments. On the other hand, it creates new skills that we must cultivate and assess. We'll delve into the potential of generative AI and learning analytics to create assessments that are:

  1. continuous – providing ongoing feedback throughout the learning process;
  2. authentic – reflecting real-world application of knowledge and skills; and
  3. future-ready – measuring skills critical for thriving in the AI era.

The talk will provide numerous practical examples and research findings about effectiveness of assessment approaches in the age of AI.
