The business environment is changing rapidly and in many different ways. Globalisation, information technology, the internet, issues of social responsibility are all impacting on the knowledge and skills required by today’s business leaders. MBA programs are expected to assist current and aspiring business managers and leaders to respond effectively to all these challenges.

One of the electives units within the MBA program at the Brisbane Graduate School of Business, Leadership II, focuses on individual leadership development, challenging students to see themselves as the most significant factor in their own success as leaders. The unit requires critical reflection of individual characteristics and beliefs.

In Leadership II, students are required to reflect critically on this process and the impact of their discoveries on their ability to lead. The assessment items within this course play a critical role in facilitating the process. The assessment moves beyond a measurement of learning to being an integral part of the learning process.

This paper describes the processes used and the evaluation of these processes by the students, and their perception of the role of assessment within the course
