Taking notes in a lecture

You will engage in a series of practical activities including


·         Exploration of what Marking to Learning Outcomes means in practice and the approaches available to you for your own grading of work

·         Practical involvement in the marking of short examples of student work

·         Engagement in processes of social moderation to discuss and agree the basis for marks awarded in grading student work

·         Consideration of how standards of work differ across different academic levels.

What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?

I’ve been asked to mark work for our courses, but I’m struggling a bit with grading the work appropriately to the level of the module.

I know that ‘Marking to Learning Outcomes’ is the UoN approach, but what does that mean for how I should approach allocating marks and giving feedback on student work?

It’s clear which is the strongest work done for this assignment, and which is the weakest, but I don’t find it easy to assign a particular grade, especially for the work ‘in the middle ground’.
