Improving consistency in your marking and feedback


This module explores the principles of providing effective and consistent assessment feedback. Participants collaborate in small groups to explore marking criteria and develop them into rubrics, then test their draft rubrics on sample student assignments. We will explore a range of principles of formative feedback, and consider how to develop consistent and collaborative feedback approaches across teaching teams.

This module provides you with practical skills to use with your own units, teaching teams, and assessment tasks.
