Abstract This paper is to examine the assessment needs of students studying in hospitality management degrees at Australian universities. The paper investigates the concept of flexible delivery, and contextualising flexible assessment. It determines the size and scope of the population of hospitality programs in Australia and the efficient methodological approach. The findings indicated that the programs were only significantly different in the negotiation of the due date of an assessment item. The results revealed that both flexible and traditional programs failed to address the assessment needs of the students when examining the elements of assessment that they would have liked to be able to negotiate. The study suggests that the students should be provided with the option of negotiating the various assessment elements even though they might wish to change the offered alternatives.
