Event description

Description

Introduction

Assessment and feedback are critical for promoting student learning. This half-day workshop draws on two Office of Learning and Teaching funded projects which seek to improve assessment and feedback through design.

Purpose and outcomes

  • Discuss key influences on assessment design within your own practice
  • Describe how assessment design can lead to more effective feedback processes
  • Identify the relationship between feedback practice and assessment design within your context
  • Discuss feedback approaches that make a difference to students’ performance and learning strategies

Issues for exploration

  • Why is it important that we consider a broader view of feedback beyond ‘provision of comments’?
  • How can assessment design help improve student work?
  • What are the local considerations when designing new assessment and feedback processes?

Outline of workshop activities

This interactive workshop will draw on participants’ experiences and will share video-based case studies, resources and key findings from two multi-institutional studies examining assessment and feedback practices. We ask that participants bring along examples of their assessment at Unit or Program level.
