What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
1. I’ve heard that marking assessments is changing. What are these changes, why are we making them and how will it affect my practice?
2. I don’t believe that it is possible to mark in LOs in my discipline area
3. I’m already using a rubric that matches my marking criteria – do I need to change anything?
4. I give holistic feedback/feedforward – do I have to use a rubric now?
5. Do I have to use a rubric to mark to Learning Outcomes?
6. Learning Outcomes often compromise a number of sub-skills – how can I mark each of the sub-components and give students feedback on each element?
For help and support with the technical aspects of using marking rubrics in either NILE or Turnitin, staff are advised to contact their Faculty Learning Technologist.
Through this you will...
- Explore the conceptual differences between marking to Learning Outcomes and marking criteria for a specific assignment
- Consider the contribution of a well-written assignment brief alongside the grade criteria
- Identify strategies to address areas of non-alignment between their current marking criteria and the Learning Outcomes for their example module to ensure marking to Learning Outcomes is achievable
- Be introduced to some of the different ways in which to mark assignments to Learning Outcomes in order to choose which approach suits your personal teaching style and module aims e.g.
- no prescribed format
- use of quantitative and qualitative rubrics (and the differences between them)
- free text boxes for each Outcome
- use of Quick Marks in Turnitin
- Consider strategies to mark complex learning outcomes
Participants are required to bring at least one Module Specification and all associated assignment briefs with them to the F2F session as well as at least one piece of student work for that assignment brief from the current academic year.

This workshop will support staff with the pedagogical aspects of marking to learning outcomes – a key feature of the 2017 UMF Review of Assessments. It will also explore some of the ways in which to do this.
Staff needing technical support on how to do this in NILE / Turnitin are advised to contact their Faculty Learning Technologist in the first instance
This session is designed to ensure that there is clear constructive alignment between Module Learning Outcomes and the associated assessments. It will help to ensure that the assessment instruments in use are appropriate and relevant, and that they support students to achieve the requirements of the Learning Outcomes.
Staff attending this session will be able to implement their learning into assessment practice with a view to supporting the progression and attainment of the different groups of students on their courses.
