Dawson, Phillip; Henderson, Michael; Mahoney, Paige; Phillips, Michael; Ryan, Tracii; Boud, David; Molloy, Elizabeth – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Since the early 2010s the literature has shifted to view feedback as a process that students do where they make sense of information about work they have done, and use it to improve the quality of their subsequent work. In this view, effective feedback needs to demonstrate effects. However, it is unclear if educators and students share this…

Globally, higher education institutions aim to assess and improve students' learning. However, assessment practices often do not culminate in improved learning. For instance, in the United States, empirical examples of learning improvement in higher education are exceptionally rare. A disconnect between assessment practices and instruction at the…

Chan, Zenobia; Ho, Simone – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
A rubric is both an assessment and an evaluation tool that is widely adopted in education. However, little is known about good and bad practices in rubrics by either students or educators in nursing education, as well as in Asian higher education in general. The aim of this qualitative study was to explore the views of students and educators on…

Chong, Sin Wang – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Recent literature on the use of exemplars in the context of higher education has shown that exemplar-based instruction is implemented in various disciplines; nevertheless, how exemplar-based instruction can be implemented in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) writing classrooms in higher education institutions remains under-explored. In this…

To, Jessica; Panadero, Ernesto – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Peers carry potential in enhancing students' self-assessment development, but few studies have explored how peer scaffolding is enacted in the process. This qualitative study explores peer assessment effects on the self-assessment process of 11 first-year undergraduates and the factors limiting peer influence. Drawing on the data from students'…

George-Williams, Stephen; Carroll, Mary-Rose; Ziebell, Angela; Thompson, Christopher; Overton, Tina – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Variation in marks awarded, alongside quality of feedback, is an issue whenever large-scale assessment is undertaken. In particular, variation between sessional teaching staff has been studied for decades resulting in many recorded efforts to overcome this issue. Attempts to curtail variation range from moderation meetings, extended training…
