dc.descriptionReport of a CELT project on supporting students through innovation and research
dc.description.abstractThat learning is a cyclical process and that assessment drives learning are established facts. It is essential that an assessment regime considers not only what a student should know but also their approach to their learning. If students are required to evaluate, for instance, the ethical implications of IT, then it is not appropriate to use an assessment instrument that simply asks for regurgitation of information. In order to improve future performances, feedback on work presented by a knowledgeable other person, whether tutor, placement supervisor or peer, is essential.2 Staff perceive that feedback prompts student discussion of their work, enables understanding and improves learning. The aims of this project were to improve the efficacy of the feedback process and the quality of assessment feedback in the School of Computing and Information Technology (SCIT). This was through the implementation of a range of steps, based on those proposed by Gibbs during the University of Wolverhampton Campaign on Assessment 2002/03).
