Essays, portfolios, presentations, exams and other means of assessment allow students to carry out a learning activity, demonstrate their understanding, and then through feedback have the opportunity to reflect on what they have learned. Assessment and feedback allow you to ensure sure that identified learning outcomes have been met and provide your students with the tools to make improvements that will help them not only in your module but enable development in other academic pursuits too.
This section will look at the main elements of assessment and feedback, including the need for a clear explanation of methods and prompt feedback to enhance the learning experience. It will offer practical examples of how to enhance your approaches in a fair, consistent and reliable way of benefit to all students.
