Novel and innovative assessment and feedback

Students are likely to enjoy and most engage in learning when assignments are exciting, interesting and relevant and where feedback is of high quality and is timely. They are also more likely to engage if they are not overworked by the extent of summative assessment. This also has implications for the lecturer's assessment workload.

We have developed a complimentary web resource, Engage in Assessment, which provides a range of tools, best practice and resources for engaging students with assessment. The site includes a section on diversifying assessment and a downloadable A-Z table of assessment methods (PDF - 119KB).

The Assessment Standards Knowledge exchange (ASKe)1 has developed a series of leaflets that provide broad, general advice on how to engage students in feedback.
