Abstract: Assessment partnerships between staff and students are considered a vital component of the student-centred educational process. To enhance the development of this partnership in a problem-based learning curriculum, all first-year students were involved in generating a bank of formative assessment questions with answers, some of which were included in their final written examination. Important principles to guide development of a sound methodology for such an assessment partnership have been described. These include organisational issues as well as matters pertaining to participation, education and motivation of students and teaching staff.
