Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Practice-based Engineering assessments that promote originality problem solving and timely delivery of feedback

This session will outline an innovative approach to assessing practical activities as part of a second year undergraduate Industrial Automation module. The approach taken places an emphasis on students applying the principles of design by making it an essential part of the process for the practical activity avoiding the frequent issue that students ‘reverse engineer’ preparatory activities. The approach also means that the assessment is performed under more realistic authentic conditions that there are regular opportunities for formative feedback and because the practical work occurs under controlled conditions there is confidence that the students have done the work themselves.
