Assessment and feedback
Transforming assessment and feedback in UK higher education with technology-enhanced solutions
Ended 31 Aug 2014100%
The 20 projects taking part in our assessment and feedback programme (2011-2014) investigated a range of technology-supported solutions to the assessment challenges of UK higher education.
These include scaling up innovative technology-enhanced approaches, embedding electronic assessment management, getting more from feedback and boosting student employability.
The programme’s initial landscape review gave a clear account of the causes of assessment and feedback issues in UK HE, and a starting point for change. The programme’s final report captures the projects’ journeys and achievements, and provides a full summary of the learning across the programme. It highlights how technology applied appropriately can lead to something truly transformative.
Knowledge, themes and resources arising from this work have been shared with the sector in four themed short guides, project blogs and in a series of themed written and video case studies. Our assessment and feedback webinars and podcast, 'driving changes in assessment and feedback', provide further insights.
Read our quick guide for a summary of the programme’s key themes and outputs. Explore our more detailed assessment and feedback accounts and our guide, 'effective assessment in a digital age' and its accompanying video case studies.
Our ongoing electronic management of assessment (EMA) project explores how technology can support the assessment lifecycle. Keep informed by joining our tech-enhanced assessment mailing list, via postings on our EMA blog or by following us on Twitter #jiscassess.
