Is Online Patchwork Text Assessment a Panacea for Assessment Practices in Higher Education?
Upton, Penney; Taylor, Charlotte
Psychology Teaching Review, v19 n1 p44-49 Spr 2013
Although assessment is acknowledged as being of central importance to the student learning experience, assessment practices have been consistently highlighted as one of the weakest features by the Quality Assurance Agency and identified by many as a crisis within higher education. This paper explores the use of Patchwork Text Assessment within a level 6 undergraduate psychology module and considers the potential of this method for enhancing the learning experiences of psychology undergraduates, facilitating the process of self-reflection and allowing students to make explicit the nature of their learning "journey". (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
