  1. Principles and Issues in Assessment design Based on Wolverhampton case study

  2. Outcomes-based approach to learning and teaching • Students prove via assessment that they can achieve the proposed learning outcomes • Subject knowledge • Subject skills • Cognitive skills • Key skills • Quality Assurance Agency Subject Benchmarks

  3. Programme + Module • Programme is overall syllabus with higher level set of learning outcomes • Module is “Self-contained, structured learning experience with a coherent and explicit set of learning outcomes which is normally assessed at the end of the semester or other learning period over which it is delivered” • Criteria become more sophisticated at each level (HE Qualifications Framework)

  4. Diagnostic/formative/summative Self assessment /peer assessment ? Individual or group coursework? Controlled conditions? Open book? Work-based projects Reflective logs Essay or report? Presentation/oral examination? Types of assessment

  5. Interrelation of Tasks • Assessment load/weightings • E.g. presentation 25%, test 25%, report 50% • Components/elements • E.g. language modules: 2 oral + 2 written tasks • Compensation • Zero weighting

  6. Documentation • Students’ information • Subject Pathway Guide (Assessment Policy) • Module Guide • Assignment brief • Assessment criteria (Learning Outcomes) • Feedback sheet

  7. Logistics • Timing • Assignment bottlenecks • Turnaround time • UoW policy 3 weeks • Subject Boards • Award Boards - see academic calendar

  8. Semester 1 13 teaching weeks 1 assessment week 1 Marking/feedback week - Resit period for each Semester 2 13 teaching weeks 2 Exam weeks 1 marking week 2 Subject Board Weeks 1 Award Board Week Academic Calendar

  9. Progression • You must pass all 120 credits at each level • You can progress with 90 credits • Can resit (repeat failed tasks) with grade E4-F1 • Resit grade can only be the minimum pass mark • After second failure = retake module • At Levels 1+2, E4 for two modules compensated

  10. Quality Assurance • Initial validation (PST and MSTs) • External Examiner verification • Internal moderation of assignments • Minor Modifications • Review and Revalidation • Student feedback • Annual Monitoring Report
