Resum

During the academic year 2005-2006 a Cross University Network for Formative and Shared Assessment in Higher Education was formed among 48 academics from 16 different universities within Spain and representing a range of academic areas. The Network was formed in response to the determination of a group of individuals who were dissatisfied with, or unconvinced by, the traditional forms of assessment used within the Spanish higher education environment. Its aim was to provide a framework within which these individuals could provide mutual support for their work on developing more innovative and effective assessment strategies within their own subject areas and at the same time provide a focus to stimulate a wider debate and more extensive research within the HE sector in Spain. The aim of this article is to explain the background and rationale for the formation of the Network, the framework it has provided, some of the initial findings and how this type of framework may be applicable to similar situations in other sectors or countries.
