Summary Developing the ability of students to think critically and systemically about sustainability issues is assessed in a variety of ways in different disciplines and institutions but there are few reports in the literature about what methods are the most successful. This paper discusses a range of assessment methods, from examinations to the SOLO taxonomy, and characterises them in terms of Bloom's taxonomy of cognitive processes.
Keyword(s) Project based learning. Bloom's taxonomy. Rubrics. Concept tests. SOLO taxonomy
