Learning outcomes

The accredited unit has the following learning outcomes:

  1. Critically analyse existing practice in marking and feedback for a selected unit or programme of study in Higher Education
  2. Evaluate the importance of a range of factors which influence assessment for learning in Higher Education, such as student involvement in assessment, ethical practice, employability, internationalisation and the use of technology to support learning
  3. Design appropriate assessment tasks which will support learning in a selected unit of study in Higher Education
  4. Design an assessment strategy for a selected unit or programme of study in Higher Education which is inclusive, rigorous and focused on achievement of the programme learning outcomes

We will be working towards these outcomes whether or not you are completing the assignment; the assignment outline is :

Present an assessment strategy for a unit or programme of study in Higher Education, explaining the rationale behind the strategy with reference to a critical review of an existing strategy and to relevant recent literature about learning and assessment in HE. The exact format of the presentation will be negotiated with the unit leader. For guidance, it might consist of a  combination of a 10 minute oral presentation, video or audio presentation, a web resource for colleagues, a set of completed forms for a quality committee, or an A2 poster, supported by a 1500 word review of an existing unit or programme assessment strategy; or it could be a traditional written report (guide length 2500 words)
