This workshop is for Plymouth University staff only.
Exams are one of the most widely used assessment methods within our degree programmes, and at some point undergraduates will engage with exams – be it the traditional time limited format or through models such as open book or ’24-hour real time’ arrangements.
Regardless of the format, students are often required to demonstrate a breath of knowledge and skills in their exams, on which at Plymouth many students receive limited feedback. Nationally there have been considerable advancements in the practice of providing feedback on exams to ensure that students gain insights into their performance.
In this session we will draw on the outcomes of a PedRIO funded project (Sellick et al., 2016) to consider current practice around exam feedback and reflect on how we can enhance our feedback practices around exams based assessment to benefit student learning.
