Dissemination strategy

Supported by LTSN


Higher education l.jpg

Higher Education

Independent, self directed learners who:

Set their own goals

Know how to achieve them

Know when they have achieved them


Teamwork in h e l.jpg

Teamwork in H.E.

Collaborative learning

Assessing others

Group Work in Media Production

Vocational activity

Replicating real-world practice

Role-orientated practice

Helps reflection and therefore learning

A crucial key skill for successful employment in the media industry


Problems l.jpg

Problems

Student resistance

Feedback

What to mark?

Degree classification

Validity

Reliability

Transparency

Moderation


Problems with assessing group work in media production l.jpg

Problems with assessing group work in Media Production

Students work in hierarchic groups as well as collaboratively

Tutor is not usually present when the work is carried out

Students are not usually present when the work is assessed

The process is assessed as well as the finished artefact


Group work and assessment l.jpg

Group Work and Assessment:

Induction and group formation

Group work process

Group work assessment


Induction and group formation l.jpg

Induction and group formation

How are groups formed?

How are roles allocated?

Do you teach group working skills?

Do you teach self and / or peer assessment skills, explain criteria, and mark range?

Do the learning outcomes of the unit match the assessment tasks and criteria?


Group work process l.jpg

Group work process

Is the process monitored? How?

What support does the tutor offer for group maintenance?

Are there intermediate deadlines to keep the project on target? Is there formative assessment at these points?


Group work assessment l.jpg

Group work assessment

Is the marking mainly on product, or process, or a combination of the two?

Is there self assessment? Is this the same as a reflective essay?

Is there peer assessment?

How is feedback given? Is there a group discussion and justification of the individual marks awarded?


Group work assessment13 l.jpg

Group work assessment

Which of these assessment systems do you use?

Student diary

Student reflective essay - on the process

Student reflective essay - on own performance

Student written review of final project - own? Other groups?

Peer assessment - with a proforma?

Tutor assessment of the process and individual contributions

Viva

Mark for specialist role (I.e. lighting)

Tutor mark for the final artefact

Students’ mark for the final artefact


Some assessment systems l.jpg

Some assessment systems

Give everyone the same mark

Everyone has a different task and they get marked on that

The group gets a mark for the project - e.g. 60%. If there are six students, the group has 6 x 60%=360 marks to allocate among themselves to reflect involvement / contribution

A basic mark is awarded for the project, and then each member negotiates + / - 10% in tutorial with the tutor who has access to diaries, notes from tutorials etc.

A basic mark is awarded for the project (e.g. 60%) and students individually allocate a mark to each of their peers (and themselves) which are averaged to produce an individual mark for each student (40%).


Gwamp case studies l.jpg

GWAMP Case Studies

6 video case studies:

Television Documentary at the University of Huddersfield

Radio Journalism at Warrington Collegiate Institute

Advertising at the University of Gloucestershire

Television Production at Bournemouth University

Interactive Media at the University of Western England

Producing Multimedia at the University of Luton


Television production at bournemouth university l.jpg

Television Production at Bournemouth University

Level I unit

Students work in groups on a number of video productions

Peer and Self assessment makes up 35% of the unit mark

Each project is assessed by a tutor and is weighted 50% of the overall unit mark

Each student writes a 4,000 word Production Analysis worth 15% which is a further form of self assessment

Television Production at Bournemouth University

An example of how GWAMP has informed our own learning and teaching strategies:

Since filming the video case study we have introduced a pro-forma to alleviate the students concerns about this form of assessment

The peer assessment is moderated by everyone marking everyone else

Students also discuss their feedback in group tutorials

View Video Case Study


Slide18 l.jpg

Best practice is good practice used appropriately

Extensive supporting materials

Flexible approach to changes in groups

Assessment criteria that reflect the intended learning outcomes

Flexibility to allow students to have part-ownership of the group work and assessment process

Tutor and technical support of the group work process

Formative assessment that allows students to reflect on their participation in group work

Tutor ability to moderate peer assessment and deal proficiently with student appeals

Transparency of assessment to allow students to understand the assessment process
