This has been another value-adding exercise for me. Although over the years my course outline has described how assessment would be done and each I have told the students the purpose of each component, before this exercise I hadn’t formally documented the primary purpose for each assessment component. The fact that I have now documented  this has already had the effect of stimulating my thinking on alternate assessment approaches.

As required I have provided a new assessment component which I addresses a new objective (goal) for the Data Warehousing course that was provided for an earlier assignment of this OLE course. As is to be expected the characteristics of this new assessment component only reflects my initial thinking. I will need to reflect more on material that has been made available in this OLE course, including the documents & blogs of other participants
