Abstract

The importance of cyber security to the global economy has only grown in recent years. Effective cyber security technical policy is an important defence against numerous threats. Consequently, it is important that computing science and software engineering graduates are able to produce effective cyber security policy. However, written assessments, such as cyber security policy, for some students may be challenging due to lack of familiarity with such assessments. The lack of familiarity or poor assessment literacy not only has the potential to produce poor results, but can led to disappointment and frustration. In this poster, the practice of integrating peer-review as part of a cyber security policy assessment task to support assessment literacy is presented. The aim is to elicit feedback from conference participants not only on the practice itself, but on addressing the challenge of assessment literacy in the context of cyber security policy.
