Early student access to automated summative marking tools for self learning

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Automated tools for summative marking or formative feedback can be useful aids for both staff and students. To aid feedback and lower staff loading on a large first year module an automated assessment tool was developed. This tool (AMEY) was then provided directly to learners for them to benchmark their project work and gain instant feedback, formative feedback but using the summative assessment criteria. Although only applicable in certain domains and even then with limitations the tool was widely used and very well received by students. Student feedback indicated that AMEY not only helped preparing their coursework for submission but broadened their understanding of the subject.
