Ten Years of Using Presentations at a Student Conference as a Final Assessment
Lund, Nick
Psychology Learning and Teaching, v12 n2 p185-188 Jun 2013
The final assessment for all psychology courses in the department of interdisciplinary studies, MMU Cheshire programmes, in the past 10 years has been a presentation of project work at an undergraduate conference. It is argued that this acts as an "authentic" assessment method which helps prepare students for future experiences. Alumni who commented on their experience of the assessment noted an increased confidence in their presentation skills, communication skills, pride in their research, and a sense of professionalism. In general it was viewed retrospectively as a valuable learning experience and social event.
