This paper considers a range of assessment methods available in conservation, it evaluates aspects by which they can be described and evaluates the priorities expressed by stakeholder groups. Responses show that there is a strong community of practice with all conservators having similar priorities for conservation assessment with conservation practice being the priority for all. The authors use this data to rate the applicability of the different assessment methods to the stakeholders priorities based on their specific use in a conservation teaching context at Cardiff University. This illustrates how educators can review forms of assessments to ensure that what the students are assessed in, and therefore what they learn, matches with the expectations of different communities.
