This paper reports on a collaborative project to improve assessment undertaken by a cross-discipline group of university lecturers (Business, Engineering and Psychology) using action research methodology. First-stage analysis was based on results from an Assessment Experience Questionnaire developed by the FAST FDTL4 (Formative Assessment in Science Teaching - Fund for the Development of Teaching and Learning Phase 4) project and complementary qualitative data. Collaborative discussion of outcomes led to formulation of improvement plans within each discipline. Further conclusions were made surrounding the selected standardised tool and the process of undertaking collaborative action research across disciplines.
