Tomas, Carmen; Jessop, Tansy – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
In spite of the rising tide of metrics in UK higher education, there has been scant attention paid to assessment loads, when evidence demonstrates that heavy demands lead to surface learning. Our study seeks to redress the situation by defining assessment loads and comparing them across research and teaching intensive universities. We clarify the…

Wilkinson, Clare – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
The principle that research should demonstrate impact is now a central driver in UK research policy, with some describing the UK as having undergone a 'culture change' in regards to evidencing the value and contribution of academic research (Watermeyer, R. 2012. "From Engagement to Impact? Articulating the Public Value of Academic…

Denovan, Andrew; Dagnall, Neil; Dhingra, Katie; Grogan, Sarah – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
University life can be stressful, and accurate measurement of perceived stress is important for research and practice. However, despite widespread use, disagreement persists regarding the latent structure of the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), which poses serious consequences for how the measure should be administered. Furthermore, factorial…

Goodhead, Lauren K.; MacMillan, Frances M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The authors have experienced increasing demand from undergraduate students, particularly those in the early years of study, to be able to access more "test-style" material to help with revision, as well as guidance on how to approach their university assessments. With increased use of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) in university…

Palmer, Shekeila D.; Hutson, James; White, Laurence; Mattys, Sven L. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
The hypothesis that known words can serve as anchors for discovering new words in connected speech has computational and empirical support. However, evidence for how the bootstrapping effect of known words interacts with other mechanisms of lexical acquisition, such as statistical learning, is incomplete. In 3 experiments, we investigated the…

Pilkington, Ruth – International Journal for Academic Development, 2019
In 2015, over 40% of UK higher education (HE) institutions employed oral assessment when assessing and awarding fellowship on HE Academy-accredited schemes using the UK Professional Standards Framework. This article develops research on assessed 'professional dialogues' for this purpose. Data collected at four UK institutions, in which 12 assessed…

Dommett, Eleanor J. – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
The aim of this study was to better understand how students use online forums and Twitter in undergraduate learning. Students completed an anonymous online survey (N = 50, 54% completion rate) to assess their general approach to these tools, the types of interaction experienced and specific uses. Students were also asked to relate their use to…

George-Williams, Stephen R.; Karis, Dimitri; Ziebell, Angela L.; Kitson, Russell R. A.; Coppo, Paolo; Schmid, Siegbert; Thompson, Christopher D.; Overton, Tina L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
How students behave and learn in the teaching laboratory is a topic of great interest in chemical education, partly in order to justify the great expense of teaching laboratories. Much effort has been put into investigating how students think, feel and physically act in these unique learning environments. One such attempt was made through the…
