Assessment in Higher Education Online 2014


This area is now archived. You can continue to refer to it and to follow us on Twitter @assessmentinhe. We also have a new site to support our regular online courses on assessment in Higher Education. You can still contact us using the links or by leaving a comment.


Module Evaluation

For those of you who participated in the online Assessment in HE module earlier this year, we’d be really grateful for your comments on your experiences. Be honest – we need to know what worked, and what didn’t!

Rod and I have kept notes about our own experiences, and we have quite a lot of anonymised statistics about engagement as well. We’ll put this together with your comments and publish a full evaluation report.

Please click here to complete the form.

Assignment deadline day

For those of you completing the assignment, then today is the deadline day (9pm UK time). Make your submissions via Moodle. There are two dropboxes: one for written submissions and one for videos. We think this should cover all of the files we know about, but let us know if we’re wrong about that.

Email both me and Rod if you get stuck with anything and the first one of us to see it will reply.


Assignment webinar recording

The recording of today’s webinar on the assignment is now available on the Archives page . If you want to check the assignment task, then it is on the learning outcomes page – more information is in the unit handbook, available in the Moodle area for those who are already registered to take the assignment. If you aren’t registered and would like to take the assignment, then please let us know.

Don’t forget to complete the Doodle about next week’s peer assessment session – so far we don’t have enough participants to make this viable.

Extra webinars

The course has officially finished but we do have two extra webinars planned:

The most popular date for the session on the assignment task is on Wednesday 9 July at 12pm UK time.

And we have asked Professor Mark Langan, National Teaching Fellow at MMU, to faciltate an additional session on 17 July. This will be held on 17 July. Please click here  to indicate your preference for 12-1pm or 6-7pm UK time. 

End of course

The last scheduled webinar on Friday covered reflecting on assignments. You can catch up on the recording here if you missed it. It turned out not to be the last webinar after all, though! There is a lot of interest in doing some additional work on peer assessment, so we have asked Professor Mark Langan, National Teaching Fellow at MMU, to faciltate an additional session. This will be held on 17 July. Please click here by Friday 4 July  to indicate your preference for 12-1pm or 6-7pm UK time on 17 July.

For those of you who have already registered for credits, or who are thinking of doing so, there is also a webinar specifically about the assignment – Wednesday 9 July at 12pm UK time was the most popular choice. We will record the session for those who can’t make it on that date. Bring along your ideas about what you’d like to do. The assignment specification is here.

Webinars are always held at this link.




Week 6

We’re getting towards the end of the scheduled time for this course, with the final topic being introduced today (21 June) at our webinar, following a review of this week’s activity around feedback audit.

All are welcome to attend the webinar at this link. It is at 12pm UK time – check here for the time in your timezone.

There will be one further scheduled webinar, on Friday 28 June at the same time.

We also propose to hold a further session to review the assessment requirements for those who are planning to submit for credit. Please click here to indicate your preference for dates.

We’ve added an ‘archive‘ page which summarises records from the webinars and Tweetchats – let us know if you think this is useful.


Update Monday 23 June:

The recording, slides and chat log from Friday’s webinar are now available on the archive page.
