On January 6th Peter Mccullen and Julie Fowlie launched BBS Quality Learning and Teaching blog site it is still a work in progress however it has links to a wide range of supporting information. It has a search function to enable you to easily find any relevant information
Pete has prepared some excellent guidance for writing exams. These notes are intended to help module leaders and teams to think about ways to improve students’ achievement of module learning outcomes during the ‘run up’ to the summer exams covering: the design of examination papers, student engagement and learning support, and revision lectures.
This is to remind everyone review the assessment and feedback guidance provided.
- Based on criteria – that have been made available (marking grid or rubric) using % weightings (this is a requirement)
- Non-judgemental language – avoiding using words such as ‘fails’, ‘lacks’, etc – the mark gives the judgement
- Developmental – tell the student how to develop, including appropriate resources
