Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Improving student engagement with marking criteria and feedback (in large classes)

Whilst many institutions are driving improvements in provision of clearer marking criteria and timely feedback this is challenging in large undergraduate classes. Therefore we attempted to develop a novel lab report assessment that drives students to engage with marking criteria and feedback yet is feasible with large cohorts. Initial data from our trial indicates that our students struggled to understand marking criteria did not enjoy the extra time/effort required and have different expectations to staff. Our improved version (Spring 2019) addresses many of the student concerns; aiming to enhance both student satisfaction and engagement whilst striving to streamline staff marking.
