UN821: Assessment and Feedback in Higher Education

Level: Masters

Credits: 15

Convenor: Dr Edd Pitt

Entry requirements: Participants should normally have undertaken, or have been exempted from, the core PGCHE modules, or should demonstrate the equivalent attainment.

Module outline: This module focuses upon assessment and feedback within higher education. The module covers in the main the impact of the educational and policy context on approaches to assessment, the relationships between assessment of and for learning, with approaches to giving feedback. The module considers the impact of ‘stakeholder’ (eg student, employer, institutional) perceptions on assessment design and practice and how these interact with feedback practices. The module further considers critically the current literature relating to recommended feedback practice and how this can be operationalised within the students learning environment.

 

Subject specific learning outcomes At the end of the module, successful participants will be able to:


Critically evaluate a wide and appropriate range of assessment methods to support student learning (PGCHE A2, A3, A5, A7, B1, B2, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6; UKPSF A2, A3, A4, K2, K6, K3, K4, V1, V4, V3). 

Critically analyse the impact that a range of assessment methods have upon curriculum design and delivery. (PGCHE A2, A3, A5, A7, B1, B2, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6; UKPSF A2, A3, A4, K2, K6, K3, K4, V1, V4, V3).

Critically evaluate personal feedback practices in light of previous and current literature recommendations (PGCHE A2, A3, A5, A7, B1, B2, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6; UKPSF A2, A3, A4, K2, K6, K3, K4, V1, V4, V3).

Demonstrate a broad understanding of the policy and educational context which inform approaches to student assessment (PGCHE A2, A3, A5, A7, B1, B2, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6; UKPSF A2, A3, A4, K2, K6, K3, K4, V1, V4, V3).

Describe and evaluate their own approach to assessment design and feedback (PGCHE A2, A3, A5, A7, B1, B2, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6; UKPSF A2, A3, A4, K2, K6, K3, K4, V1, V4, V3).
