This paper draws attention to some fresh perspectives on assessment and feedback. It summarises four recent papers that raise important issues and that challenge current thinking and practice. The papers specifically focus on feedback for learning, which is a concern in higher education due to the findings of successive National Student Surveys, where students show least satisfaction with this aspect of course provision. For each paper, the author outlines: why the paper is important; the premise of the paper; the issue it deals with; the solution; and the implications for practice.
