Planning and implementing (re)design
Implementing (re)design in assessment and feedback can feel like a big task, but it doesn’t need to be. You can make small changes and pilot them, or jump right in and make big changes. The decision is yours, but the important thing is that all the changes we make improve our students’ learning experiences.
Planning changes to your assessment and feedback strategy
Student involvement in (re)design
Our students are smart people; they are usually able to articulate what it is that doesn’t work about feedback and assessment within a course, and very often they have excellent ideas for how it can be improved too. We just need to ask! It can be as simple as a short qualitative questionnaire, or even ideas on post-it notes, or as involved as deigning assessments with your students. The route you choose to take is likely influenced by your confidence and your desire for change as well as practical considerations.
