Assessment is often thought of as being ‚Äö"on the edge of the learning world". Too often it is the after thought rather than the first thought. Let's reposition assessment, pulling it back from the edge and making it central to learning. Social media and web technologies make it possible to structure activities where the task and process of learning link assessment and learning goals. Timely feedback provided by students as well as lecturers becomes the teaching process. Choice of technologies and learning strategies relate directly to the integrated assessment task and the learner initiated identification of tasks and sub-tasks to complete the assignment. Immersive assessment is personal in that the learner engages with real-world problems associated with their own context, taking on the role of problem-solver from their own unique perspective. This paper argues for authentic teaching through assessment, where learners are encouraged to wrangle with complex situations engaging fully with their metacognitive processes
