In September 2016 we launched a new assessment resource to provide students with guidance and support around all aspects of assessment throughout the academic year.
‘Assessment4Students’ was developed in collaboration with students and includes a variety of content focused on helping students if they are:
– Finding online submission a bit of a struggle
– Having problems accessing their marks and feedback online
– Need help preparing for or have questions about their exams
Other content includes ‘ how to develop your academic skills’, ‘how to provide feedback about your course’, and links to the University’s assessment regulations.
This resource is especially useful out-of-hours and during holidays when perhaps there is a reduced level of support available on-campus.
We continue to promote the resource to students through a number of channels such as shuspace, desktop screensavers and so on, however we hope you will be able to signpost your students to this useful guidance and support; perhaps mentioning the resource during your lectures, including it on your Blackboard module site, within email communications and on your email auto-response.
We’d welcome any feedback at ! Assessment Journey Programme .
