A common method of assessment is to present students with a series of questions or prompts and to use students' written responses as evidence of their levels of knowledge, competence, understanding or attitude. We refer to assessments of this kind as 'paper and pen ' assessments. This issue on paper and pen assessment in the Assessment Resource Kit (ARK) magazine series contains five articles: 1. What is paper and pen assessment? 2. A variety of answer formats; 3. Teacher designed paper and pen assessments; 4. Professionally developed tests; 5. Designing paper and pen assessments.
