Abstract

As in most aspects of school life, students hold clear views on how they are assessed. Do assessments tasks connect with the learning activities of the classroom? Do the tasks relate to real-life situations? Despite these types of questions, few studies have ascertained systematically students’ perceptions of assessment tasks. This article reports the results of a preliminary English study of students’ perceptions of assessment tasks. In particular, this article introduces the Perceptions of Assessment Tasks Inventory (PATI: Dorman & Knightley, 2006) and uses data collected with it to group and describe students who hold similar views on assessment tasks.
