The main aim of this short introductory article is to provide a context for the three articles that follow. It begins with a brief review of the literature pertinent to student success or failure in the academy. It then moves to a description of the background of a research project which investigated the cognitive and academic literacy demands of formative and summative assessment tasks for first-year students in the Bachelor of Education (BEd) programme at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) School of Education (WSoE).
