This paper outlines how an oral presentation was introduced into a Curriculum Development and Evaluation module on the MA Academic Practice Programme at City, University of London. The assessment required the participants to engage in designing their assessment criteria and undertake self and peer assessment. The assessment has provided an opportunity for participants to gain feedback on their own oral presentation skills as well as further developing their self-assessment skills and their peer assessment skills. The use of the assessment criteria designed by the participants enabled their performance to be awarded marks across the full range possible for this assessment. However, following the first cohort, a change in how the marks were allocated was made. This assessment has been in place for a number of cohorts and is seen to be appropriate for this module. There is, though, further analysis that could be undertaken in relation to the self and peer assessment marking as well as in the value of engaging in the design of the assessment criteria.
