2 December 2010: Providing effective electronic feedback to students

Presenter: Dr Denise Whitelock (Open University, UK)

The session will cover issues relating to the provision of effective electronic feedback to students including, automated feedback on 'free text' answers (using Open Comment), feedback for tutors (using Open Mentor), supporting each other with collaborative feedback and advice for future action.

Denise is currently directing the Computer Assisted Formative Assessment Project (CAFA). This work consists of three strands 1. Building a suite of tools for collaborative assessment. 2. Working with different faculties building and evaluating different types of formative assessments, with questions built to address known student misconceptions for a given subject specialism. 3. Exploring how the introduction of a virtual learning environment (Moodle) is affecting the development of formative assessments and includes constructing a prototype that will facilitate free text entry for History formative e-assessments.
