Assessment influences students’ approaches to learning
and conveys to the learners what the exam-setters value.
Frameworks have been developed in order to understand
and analyse the demands of the assessment tasks.
In this paper, two frameworks are used to analyse one
undergraduate closed book examination in abstract
algebra. The analysis of the tasks resulting from the two
frameworks are presented and discussed. Finally, some
aspects regarding the applicability of the frameworks
are highlighted and further steps are suggested.
