Assessment and Feedback – new JISC programme underway

The JISC Assessment and Feedback programme was launched in October and projects are now well underway. The programme is focused on supporting large-scale changes in assessment and feedback practice, supported by technology, with the aim of enhancing the learning and teaching process and delivering efficiencies and quality improvements. There are three programme strands with projects of different lengths running for the next 3 years:

Strand A is focused around institutional change where 8 project will redesign assessment and feedback practices, making best use of technology to deliver significant change at programme, school or institutional level.
(See Rowin Young’s blog about the strand).

Evidence and Evaluation is the focus of strand B. These 8 projects will evaluate assessment and feedback related innovations which are already underway in a faculty or institution, and report on lessons for the sector.

The four projects in strand C will package a technology innovation in assessment and feedback for re-use (with associated processes and practice), and support its transfer to two or more named external institutions.
