Rowin’s Blog: Evaluating feedback for elearning: centralised tutors

Rowin’s Blog: Evaluating feedback for elearning: centralised tutors | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Providing fast, focused feedback to a cohort of 200 busy professionals undertaking vocational distance learning with tuition provided by a diminishing number of tutors, a number of whom are part-time, is definitely a challenging undertaking, and one for which the TQFE-Tutor system at the University of Dundee provides an innovative centralised approach. The Evaluating Feedback for eLearning: Centralised Tutors (EFFECT) project, part of the JISC Assessment and Feedback programme Strand B, will be exploring the impact of this system and considering ways of further refining the process to maximise efficiency and student benefits."

 

This post provides an overview of a centralised tutor support system and apparent benefits, such as supporting independent learning, peer interaction, streamlining the assessment process and reducing administrative workloads.

Rowin’s Blog: The evaluation of assessment diaries and GradeMark at the University of Glamorgan | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it

Another useful blog post by Rowin Young from JISC CETIS about an evaluation project at University of Glamorgan that is part of the JISC Assessment and Feedback Programme Strand B.

 

The project will evaluate variation of adoption of assessment diaries, which were introducted for scheduling and planning assessment, and to deal with assessment bunching. The use of GradeMark will also be reviewed regarding how it might address student dissatisfactions with feedback. The blog post covers some of the benefits the University has already identified through using the approaches and systems mentioned above.

Rowin’s Blog: The e-Feedback Evaluation Project... for language learning

Rowin’s Blog: The e-Feedback Evaluation Project... for language learning | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Assessment of language learning naturally presents some unique challenges for both teaching staff and learners. Regular practice of both spoken and written language production is a vital part of language training and requires a significant amount of ongoing feedback to support the acquisition of competence in the subject. In a distance learning context in particular, but similarly in any setting where feedback is provided asynchronously rather than face-to-face, providing meaningful feedback on spoken texts especially is challenging, often requiring spoken feedback to correct pronunciation and structuring errors.

 

The focus of the eFeedback Evaluation Project (eFEP),... is the impact of the combination of both spoken and written feedback on language learning."
