Welcome to the module on marking and grading in the 'Assessment and feedback' strand. This module considers the different factors involved in marking and how you can develop a professional judgement that is fair to your students, such as by discussing and comparing your judgements with colleagues and using digital forms of assessment to help support your judgement. It prompts you to reflect on the academic integrity of your students and how to encourage this through your marking practices and steps you can take to prevent it academic breaches.
Key questions to frame your learning:
Using the module
The poll questions are designed to help you think about your own situation and attitudes, and to compare your responses to those of others taking the programme. Consider talking to an academic advisor about your responses.
Throughout this course, you will see additional learning opportunities in 'pods'. Exploring the information provided in the pods will enrich the learning experience.
Every module will include a scenario screen that prompts you to apply the best practices, concepts and skills that you have learned in the module to your own context.
Every module will have a 'What's next?' screen that summarises what you have learned and helps you to reflect on how to apply and further expand on your learning after you complete the module.
At the very end of each module, you have the opportunity to test your learning further with a multiple-choice quiz. This consists of five questions and can be taken more than once (a new set of questions will appear).
