Poster 9:

Enhancing Assessment and Feedback Practices—The Student Wishlist

Joanna Wilson-Scott  University of Aberdeen, UK

As part of the “Transforming the Experience of Students Through Assessment” (TESTA) project being implemented at the University of Aberdeen, undergraduate focus groups were run in two academic Schools. The sessions were designed to ascertain student experiences of assessment and feedback practices they encountered across their degree programs. The aim was to gather qualitative data from students to identify effective assessment practice and also potential enhancement areas. Initial project findings include the need for more personalized feedback and also more varied, innovative, and cohesive assessments that enhance employability and skills development. We present some suggestions for next steps.
