Time         : 12:45pm – 2pm
Venue       : Room 321, Run Run Shaw Building
Facilitator : Professor Grahame Bilbow

Students’ reports on the assessment and feedback they experience at university suggest that practices vary considerably both within and across institutions. Despite the move in recent years towards the outcome-oriented curriculum and a greater level of integration of assessment within courses, it is still common for students to misunderstand the forms and purposes of the assessment and feedback they experience while at university.  It is also not uncommon for university teachers to use assessment and feedback in ways that confuse students, and in ways that do not align with curriculum outcomes.

Using research conducted in the teaching and learning of Physics, this workshop explores the trajectory from novice to expert, and considers ways in which assessment and feedback can be designed to elicit expert-like performance on the part of students.  In so doing, assessment and feedback can be better understood by students and assessment and feedback can demonstrate stronger alignment to curriculum outcomes.
