Assessment Literacy

May 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In this online workshop Dr Rebecca Pike and Dr Rose Murray from the School of Biological Sciences will explore how improvements in assessment literacy (for both staff and students) were realised through a series of co-creation initiatives involving student partners.

The workshop will outline these initiatives, what worked well, how their impact was evaluated and how the initiatives could be usefully applied across different Schools.

The three initiatives include:

  1. The Assessment & Feedback Portfolio (AFP): The AFP is a collection of tools available to students in Blackboard which contains clear information about assessments, resources to help them improve their academic and transferable skills, and a tool that allows students to consolidate their feedback for themselves and identify the skills they are demonstrating well or need to improve.
  2. The Feedback Cafe: A fortnightly drop-in opportunity for students to ask questions about upcoming assessments or to discuss their feedback. The Cafe is run by a mix of academic staff, study skills advisors, and student skills advocates.
  3. Feedback Engagement Workshops: interactive workshops were run for students in each year of our UG programme which showed students how to engage meaningfully with their feedback and how to use the AFP.

Joining instructions will be sent out via email ahead of the event.
