Assessment is used by medical education provider institutions for the purposes of improving learning outcomes and ensuring accountability for learning and teaching practices. Although assessment goals and responsibilities involve administrators, educators and students; improving learning for students lies squarely in the hands of educators, whose responsibility is to develop valid and reliable assessment instruments that both drive learning and provide evidence to stakeholders, such as employers, of the quality of education provided. Societal expectations make it imperative that medical educators adopt robust quality assured assessment processes that are both fair and defensible. This chapter begins with a general overview of the importance, rationale and principles of quality assurance (QA) of assessment in medical education. Next, it explores approaches and mechanisms of ensuring QA, using examples and case scenarios. The chapter concludes by emphasising the significance and need for continuous quality improvement of assessment practices and processes.
