Assessing Colleagues' Learning (M-level)


Course Code: MMAAEP_02


Masters Level Module


Assessing Colleagues' Learning has been specifically developed alongside MMAAEP_03 (Developing the role of the Higher or Further Education Tutor) as continuing professional development for tutors working in HE and FE establishments. Participants will explore formal assessment procedures and reflect on quality assurance and quality enhancement for effective provision. They will analyse criteria for summative assessment as well as investigate alternative modes of assessment, such as portfolios or computer based methods. The needs of different subject fields will be considered. Both formative and summative assessment processes are studied with particular attention to their role in the learning process. The module may be delivered by traditional methods, by blended mode, or fully by distance online, depending on specific needs of participants. Practical work including discussion of sample submissions for grading is included. Participants are expected to submit coursework evidencing their reading in the field and their reflections upon their experience of formative and summative assessment procedures.
