Feedback tracking and improvement
One of the most valuable things you can do as a student is keep track of the feedback you receive, and use the suggestions of your markers to improve on subsequent assignments. It can be difficult to manage feedback from multiple sources, and sometimes you’ll get feedback digitally or as a physical copy. Try to set one spot where you record all of your feedback (a storage file, a folder on your computer, a notebook), and look over previous feedback before upcoming assignments to make sure that you’re addressing problem areas.
Working with your feedback
The Toolkit offers practical advice on how to get the most out of your feedback in the student section, and we will continue adding resources to support our students in their feedback practice.
The guide to the marking system for students can help in understanding your grade, and set a target for what you need to work on to improve.
If you’re unsure about your overall course grade, or what marks you need to achieve a high enough grade to continue in your desired course, you can consult the University guide on calculating your grade. If you don’t think your marks are high enough, it is worth speaking to your tutor or course convenor, and asking them for advice.
