Problem Identified

The assessments do not offer enough detail to be clearly understood by individuals holding different expectations (both academics and students).

Solution Proposed

Actively engage students in the assessment and feedback process by developing a learning partnership between academics and students. This will be done by co-creating a digital resource on assessment literacy, i.e. CU Learning and Assessment Wiki (CLAW)

  • CLAW is an inclusive platform where assessment and feedback taxonomies can be constructed by students for students.
  • The short-term impact is related to assessment literacy by encouraging students to work in a group and with their respective lecturer to decipher their assessment.
  • The platform can also include Tips and Tricks to complete a successful assessment and the meaning behind the feedback that students receive.
  • The long-term impact results from its application in various fields and across various campuses.
  • Building a data bank of terms that encourage assessment flexibility, targeted feedback, and improving the overall attitude towards assessments and NSS responses.
