This paper sums up the results of action research conducted by the author to evaluate the efficacy of using Poster Presentations as an assignment for a large communication class. The increase in class sizes, even in communication courses, had prompted a rethink of the current assessment methods. For the first time in the university posters were used as a means of assessing students’ work. The lecturer conducted descriptive research to assess the feasibility of repeating the assessment in future communication courses. A survey consisting of a sample of 25% of the population was conducted along with several informal interviews. The results show overwhelming support for using Posters as an assessment method.
