This workshop day has been specifically designed to provide colleagues in the Science Faculty with an opportunity to consider issues surrounding the assessment, marking and provision of feedback for written assessments.  During the four workshop sessions, participants will have the chance to reflect on such issues as:

  • the appropriateness of assessment tasks,
  • clarifying standards, level and criteria,
  • procedures to support good marking practice, and
  • providing feedback that makes a difference.

The sessions will exemplify such practices as:

  • standardising multiple markers,
  • marking assignments with reference to criteria,
  • writing feedback,
  • providing limited time, face-to-face feedback.
