This paper examines the usefulness of a combination of self, peer and tutor (mixed mode) assessment of group presentations for promoting deep learning and enhancing the learning experience of students undertaking the first year topic Aust 1004 - An Introduction to Aboriginal Studies, part of the Indigenous minor at Flinders University. It discusses the relative advantages and disadvantages of the three assessment processes and argues that a combination of all three can create an environment to promote deep learning. It evaluates the experiences of 25 first year students using this process and finds that deep learning is enhanced by mixed mode assessment.
