Student Success is a six-month longitudinal project for the Connect Benefit Series 2021-22 focusing on assessment and feedback, as well as flexible learning, employability, and access, retention, attainment and progression.
This is the first in a series of two podcasts previewing the findings of a literature review on assessment and feedback, looking into research articles published between 2016 and 2021.
In the first episode, Edd Pitt, Senior Lecturer Higher Education and Academic Practice at the University of Kent and Kathleen M Quinlan, Professor in Higher Education and Director of the Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Kent discuss the assessment side of the literature review. They explain their chosen definition of assessment, and discuss assessment for learning, high-impact practices, attainment gaps, and the importance of making assessment more authentic, as well as the synergies with the feedback side of the literature review.
