Written assignments

Essays and reports are a common form of undergraduate assessment. These can be difficult to mark and time consuming to provide feedback on. Essays and reports can allow the student to express their individuality and their depth of learning. However, the time involved in marking can make it difficult to provide good quality timely feedback, particularly to large classes.

Encouraging self-evaluation

The assessment process becomes much more transparent to students if they can gain a better idea Pen and writing of what is expected of them. Using 'feed forward' to make this clear and encouraging students to complete assignment 'checklists' prior to submitting their work, allows students to see how their efforts will contribute to intended learning outcomes and help make the subsequent feedback more effective.
