Bergsmann, Evelyn; Klug, Julia; Burger, Christoph; Först, Nora; Spiel, Christiane – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2018
There is a lively discussion on how to evaluate competence-based higher education in both evaluation and competence research. The instruments used are often limited to course evaluation or specific competences, taking a rather narrow perspective. Furthermore, the instruments often comprise predetermined competences that cannot be adapted to higher…

Colthorpe, Kay; Sharifirad, Tania; Ainscough, Louise; Anderson, Stephen; Zimbardi, Kirsten – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2018
To succeed at post-secondary education, it is essential that students develop an understanding of their own knowledge and learning processes. This metacognition of learning, or "meta-learning," helps students to become more effective learners, as they become more aware of their self-regulatory processes and recognise the effectiveness of…

Huxham, Mark; Scoles, Jenny; Green, Ursula; Purves, Samantha; Welsh, Zoe; Gray, Andrew – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2017
Peer review is a powerful method to enhance teaching in higher education. Peers, however, may not be the most relevant people in evaluating teaching success; as the most important stakeholders in learning, students' evaluations need to be heard. Whilst some efforts to capture "the student voice" are simplistic and may foster consumerist…

McMorran, Chris; Ragupathi, Kiruthika; Luo, Simei – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2017
The relationship between assessment and learning in higher education often comes down to a single thing: a grade. Despite widespread criticism of grades as inexact tools, whose overemphasis undermines student learning and negatively affects student well-being, they continue to be the norm in the assessment of student learning. This paper analyses…

Britton, Emily; Simper, Natalie; Leger, Andrew; Stephenson, Jenn – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2017
Effective teamwork skills are essential for success in an increasingly team-based workplace. However, research suggests that there is often confusion concerning how teamwork is measured and assessed, making it difficult to develop these skills in undergraduate curricula. The goal of the present study was to develop a sustainable tool for assessing…

This paper describes an intervention for improving the quality of peer assessment conferences in calculus. Although a body of work highlights the learning benefits of peer assessment, few papers have described the nature of student conversations during peer conferences/assessment in detail. This paper provides deeper insight into what those…

Ali, Nadia; Rose, Sarah; Ahmed, Lubna – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2015
Undergraduate students' perception of feedback and level of engagement with the feedback they receive have gained increasing attention in the educational literature recently to identify areas which require educators' attention. However, research in this area has generally been based on limited self-selecting samples, and has not considered how…

Sopina, Elizaveta; McNeill, Rob – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2015
Feedback can have a great impact on student learning. However, in order for it to be effective, feedback needs to be of high quality. Electronic marking has been one of the latest adaptations of technology in teaching and offers a new format of delivering feedback. There is little research investigating the impact the format of feedback has on…
