Plus/minus marking: a method of assessment worth considering?

John Cowan 2004

Short paper examining the use of plus/minus marking - whereby a defined standard of work is set against which students' work is marked. Aspects of the work that exceed the standard have marks added, while work that is below the standard has marks deducted. The paper discusses how this approach provides helpful formative feedback, can improve student learning and can prove a useful introduction into self-assessment as it provides students with an insight into the marking process.

The experiences of University Lecturers when enhancing their teaching through the use of digital technology: a systematic review

Lynne Jump 2010

From the Higher Education Academy website: "This review set out to gather and analyse evidence of lecturer's practice of using technology within teaching. The review showed that lecturers use technology to increase the satisfaction of their students, improve their learning or to mediate changes in their learning behaviour, and they are more likely to achieve this by using technology to teach more. The skills and professionalism of the lecturer are key determinants of student satisfaction when technology is used to enhance their learning." Published by the Higher Education Academy.
