  • Empower

    Facilitate opportunities forself-assessment and reflection
    Deliver feedback that helps students self-correct
    Provide opportunities for feedback dialogue (peer and tutor-student)
    Encourage positive motivational beliefs and self-esteem
    Provide opportunities to apply what is learned in new tasks
    Yield information that teachers can use to help shape teaching
    Engage
    Capture sufficient study time and effort in and out of class
    Distribute students’ effort evenly across topics and weeks.
    Engage students in deep not just shallow learning activity
    Communicates clear and high expectations to students.
    REAP principles
  • Do we over assess?
    From a student perspective
    From a tutor perspective
    How do we build in variability?
    Alternatives to 3000-word essay
    Right ratio of TMAs to ECAs to exams?
    Should we move to awards-based assessment?
    If so, how?
    Discussion
  • Types of activities
    Assimilative (attending and understanding content),
    Information handling (e.g. gathering and classifying resources or manipulating data),
    Adaptive (use of modelling or simulation software),
    Communicative(dialogic activities, e.g. pair dialogues or group-based discussions),
    Productive (construction of an artefact such as a written essay, new chemical compound or a sculpture) and
    Experiential(practising skills in a particular context or undertaking an investigation). 
    Assessment(diagnostic, formative, summative)
    Think exercise…
  • Pedagogy profile
