Term Definition
high stakes assessment

a test or system of testing which has important consequences for those taking part: for example it may lead to divergent future pathways in education to big rewards to stark intimations of success/failure to continuity in or removal from a course/institution. It is associated with anxiety and stress and may thus be prone to producing unreliable results.
