This paper (12 page PDF) published by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) in Australia draws on "expertise, based on evidence, theory and practice, about how to design assessment for a digital world, which includes artificial intelligence" in order to "provide guidance for the sector on ways assessment practices can take advantage of the opportunities, and manage the risks, of AI." It is based on two principles: "to equip students to ;participate ethically and actively in a society where AI is ubiquitous," and "multiple, inclusive and contextualised approaches to assessment." From these, it forms five propositions, with examples, to advise institutions. I don't see the document as particularly groundbreaking, but it's nonetheless useful as a touchpoint.
