Winstone, Naomi E.; Nash, Robert A.; Rowntree, James; Menezes, Richard – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2016

One recent study found that, in such circumstances, students actually perceive feedback information…

Proud, Steven – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2015
When students fail an examination at the end of their first year, they are offered a resit examination, which they merely need to pass to progress into the second year. These resits anecdotally provide a dual purpose of testing that students have achieved the required level of attainment to progress, and incentivising additional effort. This paper…

Gleaves, Alan; Walker, Caroline; Grey, John – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2007
The incorporation of diaries and journals as learning and assessment vehicles into programmes of study within higher education has enabled the further growth of reflection, creative writing, critical thinking and meta-cognitive processes of students' learning.
