Provide the length requirement for the assessment item or state if the length of the assessment is not applicable, such as for laboratory reports. Length of an assessment task is very important. It provides an indication of the depth of response required. Ensure that this is the overall word length of the assessment item and make some comment about whether you see this as a maximum, minimum or target for this assessment. Indicate whether this length includes the reference list as well. Also include word length for separate parts if appropriate.

Examples of Length:

  • 2000 words ± 10% (Essay)
  • 50 multiple choice questions (Online test)
  • Approx. 300 words per question (Short answer questions)
  • 15 minutes (Presentation)
  • No more than 10 pages (Report)
