Feedback and assessment

Theory, research and practice workshops

Uncover the theory behind effective assessment design and feedback in higher education as a precursor to a discussion about practical strategies and tactics.

About this session

Feedback and assessment are among the most critical aspects of effective design for learning in higher education. Students consistently rate their satisfaction with the feedback they receive as among the lowest of all the factors contributing to their experiences at university. Assessment tasks also tend to drive student learning behaviour more than any other part of the curriculum.

This workshop covers the theory behind effective assessment design and feedback in higher education as a precursor to a discussion about practical strategies and tactics for effective assessment and feedback. As part of this session, there will be a discussion of opportunities and implications of choices within the construction of a submission and feedback cycle using the Learning Management System (LMS).

The session will involve both an exploration of the principles of quality assessment and feedback and an opportunity for some hands-on activities.
