Introduction Learning and assessment are mutually dependent because both students and teachers tend to pay greater attention to learning objectives that are assessed (Biggs, 1996; Shepard, 2000). is relationship has profound implications for the large-scale uptake of collaborative learning, which is de ned for the purpose of this chapter as any educational approach in which students work toward a shared learning goal. Examples include learning in small groups, learning from online discussions, and learning in communities, which are discussed in other chapters in this handbook.
