During the last 20 years, assessment has been generating debate in relation to its goals, usages and quality in Higher Education. Amongst others, three reasons stand out to explain this interest: i) the turn towards student-centered teaching-learning approaches;ii) the use of competencies as goals or learning outcomes; c) the common lack of pedagogical training of faculty. This seminar introduces ideas, reflections and discussion about trends, decisions and challenges related to, amongst other topics, the purposes and criteria for quality educational assessment and feedback and constructive alignment. With this, the seminar aims to offer a standpoint to analyze, discuss and enhance assessment practices at university level.
