Artificial Intelligence (AI) can produce outputs that satisfy the requirements of some high-stakes assessments across various disciplines, including law, medicine, and engineering. It has driven concerns about a new wave of AI-enabled cheating and questions about the sustainability and authenticity of current assessment practices.

This presentation explores how assessment needs to change in the age of AI. It draws upon the presenter's work as one of the leaders of the significant Australian project Assessment reform for a time of artificial intelligence, which the Australian higher education regulator funded. The presentation's primary focus is resolving the tension between preparing students for a world permeated by AI and ensuring the integrity and security of assessment.


Professor DAWSON Phillip (Phill) is the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE) Co-Director at Deakin University. His research addresses the many perceived 'threats' to assessment validity in a digital world. These threats span the use of artificial intelligence for cognitive offloading, the (in)security of online exams, assessments that are not inclusive, and beyond. His two latest books are Defending Assessment Security in a Digital World: Preventing E-Cheating and Supporting Academic Integrity in Higher Education (Routledge, 2021) and the co-edited volume Re-imagining University Assessment in a Digital World (Springer, 2020). Phill initially studied artificial intelligence and cybersecurity before his PhD in higher education. Beyond validity, he conducts broader research into assessment, which includes work on assessment design and feedback. Phill performs improv comedy in his spare time and produces the academia-themed comedy show The Peer Revue.
