dc.description.abstract The aim of this article is to describe the process of an in situ staff development process with the objective to influence change in assessment practice. An in situ training course focusing on writing questions for written examinations, but also including some contextual aspects of assessment practice, was therefore developed and implemented. The anticipated change was measured against Kirkpatrick’s four levels for evaluating training programmes. As a whole the reaction from the participants was positive (Kirkpatrick Level 1), and in a number of instances learning, which includes changes in attitude, knowledge, and skills (Kirkpatrick Level 2) and change in behaviour (Kirkpatrick Level 3) was observed. To conclude the staff development initiative in the form of in situ assessment training facilitated change resulting in an improvement in assessment practice in the School in a relatively short period of time. en_US
