Aligning Feedback to Learning Outcomes

Dawn Joyce & Ewan Ingleby,

Teesside University


Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

Learning outcomes:

  • Identify the nature and purpose of module learning outcomes

  • Link Learning outcomes to assessment

  • Distinguish the advantages of ECA and ICA/ECA

  • Identify positives and negatives from assignment feedback


The educational context

The Educational Context?

Wires

 The wildest prairies have electric fences

For though the cattle know they must not stray

Young cattle are always after purer water

Not here but anywhere beyond the wires

Leads them to blunder up against the wires

Whose muscle-shredding violence gives no quarter.

Young cattle become old from that day,

Electric limits to their wildest senses.

Philip Larkin

Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

If your course is constructively aligned it links

together:

  • what the course is for (aims)

  • what students will learn (outcomes)

  • the content and sequence

  • how it will be taught

  • the assessment design and criteria

  • student support and learning resources

  • methods of evaluation


Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

Learning outcomes - why should we use them?

- What we want students to know

- How we want students to learn

- How well students have learned it

- How effective the programme has been


Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

Learning outcomes - what are the programme benefits?

- Can help to improve student involvement and motivation by:

  • Giving them explicit targets to aim for

  • Helping them make informed choices about courses or modules i.e. module or programme handbooks


Example module learning outcomes

Example Module Learning Outcomes

Knowledge & Understanding

4. Justify conclusions in relation to the provision of effective children’s services.

5. Recognise the provisional and changing nature of knowledge in relation to

children’s services.  

Practical & Professional Skills

6. Recognise an effective children’s service. 

Key Transferable Skills

7. Identify own learning strengths and needs resulting from feedback.

8. Identify and use writing skills appropriate to the context.

Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

Linking learning outcomes to assessment

  • What is the best way of making learning outcomes develop students study skills?

  • Is there an ideal number of outcomes?

  • What should we avoid doing?


Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

Advantages of ECA and ICA/ECA

  • What is the best way of making assessments develop students study skills?

  • Is there an ideal number of assessments?

  • What should we avoid doing?


Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

What is shown in a good module

  • Manageable learning outcomes (IQER)

  • Manageable assessment

  • Feedback which reflects the learning outcomes and helps learners to develop cognitive skills


Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

Activity:

Review the assignment feedback sheets and identify the positives and negatives shown in each.


Aligning feedback to learning outcomes

Ideal feedback

  • Should reflect the stated learning outcomes

  • Show developmental comments

  • Be provided in a given time frame normally within 4 weeks (except dissertations and/or portfolios)

  • Relate to the work and not to the student

  • Should comment on the strengths as well as the weaknesses.
