Nieminen, Juuso Henrik; Tai, Joanna; Boud, David; Henderson, Michael – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Student agency is often mentioned as a key feature of feedback practices. Commonly, the concept of agency is used to refer to students' active role in the process of seeking, receiving, generating and acting upon feedback information.

This paper contributes findings from a randomised controlled experiment on the effect of rubrics on evaluative judgement. Participants…

Chan, Cecilia Ka Yuk; Luo, Jiahui – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Universities around the world are encouraging teachers to provide more constructive feedback to support student learning, but do teachers know how to distinguish constructive feedback? What pedagogical practice is considered as feedback and what is not? For example, is a rubric a type of feedback? To date, very limited research has answered these…

Zheng, Lanqin; Zhong, Lu; Niu, Jiayu – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Learning analytics has been widely used in the field of education. Most studies have adopted a learning analytics dashboard to present data on learning processes or learning outcomes. However, only presenting learning analytics results was not sufficient and lacked personalised feedback. In response to these gaps, this study proposed a learning…

Cannon, Edmund; Cipriani, Giam Pietro – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Student evaluations of teaching may be subject to halo effects, where answers to one question are contaminated by answers to the other questions. Quantifying halo effects is difficult since correlation between answers may be due to underlying correlation of the items being tested. We use a novel identification procedure to test for a halo effect…

Clayson, Dennis – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
For several decades research into the student evaluation of teaching has periodically found an association between how well students like an instructor and the evaluations. The association has been largely ignored, being seen as an indicator of bias, or as a statistical or procedural artifact. However, these interpretations may be obscuring a more…

Borch, Iris; Sandvoll, Ragnhild; Risør, Torsten – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Many documents are produced in evaluation processes; documentation of student evaluation can therefore be time-consuming. Nevertheless, we have little knowledge about how these documents are used. This paper is based upon analysis of documents that direct and report on internal student evaluation practice at a Norwegian university. Interviews with…

Gladovic, Cedomir; Tai, Joanna Hong-Meng; Dawson, Phillip – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
When students graduate, they cannot rely on educators telling them if their work is good enough. To do so, they need well-developed evaluative judgement, the capability to make decisions about the quality of their own and the work of others. There is little evidence about the specific approaches that can develop evaluative judgement--or how to…

Winstone, Naomi; Boud, David; Dawson, Phillip; Heron, Marion – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Feedback is a term used so frequently that it is commonly taken that there is a shared view about what it means. However, in recent years, the notion of feedback as simply the provision of information to students about their work has been substantially challenged and learning-centred views have been articulated. This paper employs a corpus…

Day, Indira N. Z.; Saab, Nadira; Admiraal, Wilfried – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Peer feedback can be a tool to help higher education students develop presentation skills. This process can be supported by using online tools that enable peers to provide feedback annotated to specific moments in the presentation. The current paper investigated whether providing and receiving peer feedback using an online tool was related to…

This study reports on the quantitative findings of an exploratory sequential mixed methods study in which the underlying factor structure of students' peer-feedback orientation (i.e. openness to provide and receive peer-feedback) was investigated. Building on the qualitative findings of a previous study in which the 'peer-feedback orientation'…
