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’.
Through this 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.
Who would benefit from this workshop
Staff involved in marking and grading student work, both staff new to HE teaching and more experienced staff who are new to UoN.
To register, please visit U4BW (using Citrix if necessary). You will receive an Outlook calendar invitation within 48 business hours of registration.
Upcoming workshop sessions
- Date: 15th November 2021
- Location Collaborate
This workshop focuses on approaches to marking work adopted in UoN and develops your skills and understanding for allocating marks to different standards of student work.
This workshop makes links both with the national quality frameworks of academic level and with how this has been interpreted within institutional documentation and processes.
In assessment it is important that students can see why they have been awarded particular marks for their work and how they could improve. The workshop includes a focus on how to make it clear how the marks awarded for work relate to achievement in relation to module learning outcomes.
