E. – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
The UK National Student Survey (NSS) is a sound and widely used instrument for assessing students' academic experiences. We aimed to translate the NSS for Portuguese students and to validate the instrument in a sample of medical undergraduates. The research team translated and adapted the NSS for Portuguese students (NSS-P). The survey was…

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…

Steen-Utheim, Anna; Hopfenbeck, Therese N. – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Feedback is important for student learning; however, research shows that students can have a number of difficulties when attempting to learn from feedback. Based on an in-depth analysis of undergraduate students' self-reported reflection logs, we present findings about students' experiences with oral and written feedback and how they act upon this…

Howard, Emma; Meehan, Maria; Parnell, Andrew – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
In "Maths for Business," a large first-year mathematics module, the continuous assessment component comprises 10 weekly quizzes which combine to contribute 40% of the final module mark. If students did not receive the full five marks on their weekly quiz, they were provided with the opportunity to resubmit their corrected weekly quiz…

Guasch, Teresa; Espasa, Anna; Martinez-Melo, Montserrat – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Research on feedback has focused more on generating feedback rather than on how students use it and implement it; that is, what type of cognitive, metacognitive or affective activity students engage in once they have received feedback. In order to visualize feedback use and implementation, a quasi-experimental study was carried out. Students were…

Seifert, Tami; Feliks, Orna – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Self-assessment and peer-assessment are strategies employed to encourage students to take more responsibility for the learning process. Although the advantages are not obvious, the process has the potential to empower learning and to assist the development of assessment skills, which are so important for future teachers. The research aimed to…

Batten, John; Jessop, Tansy; Birch, Phil – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
The Assessment Experience Questionnaire has been widely used to measure conditions of learning from assessment. It is one of three methods used in the 'Transforming the Experience of Students through Assessment' research process, originally funded by the Higher Education Academy to explore programme assessment patterns, and now used extensively in…

Mimirinis, Mike – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
The paper reports the results of a phenomenographic study on academics' conceptions of e-assessment. A cohort of 21 academics from 17 disciplines participated in semi-structured interviews exploring their experiences of using web-based technologies for formative and summative assessment purposes. Through iterative analysis of the interview…

Smith, Kristen; Finney, Sara; Fulcher, Keston – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
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…

Thomas, Damon; Moore, Robbie; Rundle, Olivia; Emery, Sherridan; Greaves, Robyn; te Riele, Kitty; Kowaluk, Andy – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Assessment is a central feature of student learning in higher education and has a strong influence on the student experience. Accordingly, the appropriate communication of assessment aims is a priority for all higher education institutions. This study proposes an analytical framework for the interpretation and creation of assessments across higher…

Alvero, Alicia M.; Mangiapanello, Kathleen; Valad, Jennifer – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Four instructor-led strategies designed to increase faculty teaching response rates were assessed across both small (n < 50) and large (n = 50) class sizes. The interventions included: (a) individual incentives, (b) group incentives, (c) instructor motivation and (d) instructor motivation plus feedback. A comparison group utilizing the standard…

Carless, David – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
A key challenge for feedback practice involves promoting student uptake through the closing of feedback loops. This paper investigates feedback loops by using the concepts of single and double-loop learning to interrogate student responses to feedback. Single-loop learning tackles an identified problem or task, whereas double-loop learning…

Ramon-Casas, Marta; Nuño, Neus; Pons, Ferran; Cunillera, Toni – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
This article presents an empirical evaluation of the validity and reliability of a peer-assessment activity to improve academic writing competences. Specifically, we explored a large group of psychology undergraduate students with different initial writing skills. Participants (n = 365) produced two different essays, which were evaluated by their…

Kuch, Fred; Roberts, Robin M. – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
This study sought to determine whether an evaluator conducting electronic course evaluations in person in a classroom increased response rates. At a large public university in the United States, course evaluations were being conducted electronically, attaining a response rate of <50% over several semesters. At the end of the Spring 2015 at this…

Simper, Natalie; Frank, Brian; Kaupp, Jake; Mulligan, Nerissa; Scott, Jill – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Critical thinking, problem solving and communication are fundamental elements of undergraduate education, but methods for assessing these skills across an institution are susceptible to logistical, motivational and financial issues. Queen's University conducted two research studies investigating the use of standardised tests to assess cognitive…
