WEBINAR: Getting Started with Assessment and Feedback in Higher Education : This webinar will concentrate on: Matching marks to criteria; Assuring standards; Ensuring inter-assessor and intra-assessor reliability; effective assessment design; and giving effective feedback Other events...
Starting out with assessment can be terrifying. People often ask themselves questions like: How do I know how good this work is? There are such diverse responses how do I know which ones are the highest quality? How do I know if my marks match up to those of my fellow assessors? How much damage will I do to a student if I get their mark wrong? How much feedback should I give to students? What kinds of tone should I adopt? Is it more important to concentrate on telling the student about the things they have done wrong, or to give them advice on how to improve on the next assignment, or both? How am I going to cope with the workload? How do I set about designing a decent assignment for my module? How will I know if it is too easy or too hard? What kind of assessment methods should I use? Should I just stick to exams and MCQs or maybe try something a bit different? How risky would that be and what will happen to me if I stuff things up?

These are the kinds of questions we will address in this webinar, for those new to assessing in higher education, which will concentrate on matters including: Matching marks to criteria; Assuring standards; Ensuring inter-assessor and intra-assessor reliability; Effective Assessment design; and Giving effective feedback.

The session won't provide cast-iron solutions to all these questions but will provide support and practical advice to those new in role as HE assessors.
