Research shows that active, social, engaging and student-owned learning experiences promote higher level critical thinking skills and leads to meaningful learning. This is challenging in large classes of fifty or more students. They are used to a system where they have little input in experientially building their critical scholarship skills. They expect to be assessed through lengthy hourly exams consisting of multiple choice questions, fill-in the blanks and short paragraph essays.

In a move to integrate assessment practices with students’ engagement in critical thinking and course content, the instructor, together with an educational consultant from SFU’s Teaching Learning Centre planned an assignment that was team-based with interactive verbal analytical skills and ‘thinking on the spot’.

The research questions are:

• What are the ways students can be individually assessed in a team-based activity, taking into account the expectations of an especially diverse student population?

• How do we ensure that these assessments are multidimensional, capturing inventive thinking while minimizing students’ self conscious efforts?

Our presentation approach is exploratory. Participants are invited to partake in a sample exercise.
