Abstract

The study addresses a concern in higher education and specifically in health sciences and technology regarding integrated and authentic assessment with an outcomes-based approach. Interviews were conducted with head-hunted academics in health sciences and technology. From the information generated, an assessment model is proposed for application in health sciences and technology. By applying the Delphi technique, a validated assessment model is presented for assessment in outcomes-based education and training (OBET) in health sciences and technology. The process and product of the research should add value to the assessment of learning in the outcomes-based approach in higher education with specific reference to health sciences and technology.
