Improving the quality of feedback through the use of electronic marking a journey. Maureen Readle, Jak Radice, Neil McKeown Centre for Educational Development University of Bradford An eMarking Journey

2 Background issues. University of Bradford policies. Present practices. Development of eFeedback and eMarking Experience of eMarking Issues encountered The way forward? Background issues How to improve the quality of feedback? Why isnt feedback valued?

NSS 2012 Feedback on my work has been prompt 64% I have received detailed comments on my work 63% 3 University Policies Policies that affect assessment and marking: Anonymous marking. 20 day turnaround time for completion of marking process. Electronic submission of coursework. Typed feedback.

Drivers for eMarking 4 Marking and Feedback Emphasis on summative assessment marked anonymously. Some good practice related to formative feedback. 5 Development of eFeedback No consistent policy or approach:

Audio feedback. Word comments. Returned via Blackboard or email. TurnitinUK GradeMark: Ad hoc by individual academics. 6 Development of eMarking Development of stand alone whole-school approaches: SOM, SCIM, EDT; Web-based assessment criteria grids / rubrics.

Outside institutional framework, e.g. Not integrated with centrally-supported tools such as VLE 7 Development of eMarking Development of whole-school approaches using centrally supported tools: TurnitinUK GradeMark: QuickMarks: Trialled with SOHSs IPE module; Use by 2 Schools + lecturers in other schools. Rubric: Qualitative rubric [one school].

8 eMarking Requirements include Anonymous marking. On-line and off-line marking. Rubric (assessment criteria). Comments: In text; About each criteria; General comments.

Second marking / moderation; Blind double marking. 9 Audit trail for External Examiner. Check for unoriginal content. Marking process hidden from students. Spell checker. etc. etc.

Implementation: TurnitinUK GradeMark 1. Trialled with IPE module (2010-11): School of Health Studies interdisciplinary module; 145 3rd year students. 2. Whole of School of Health Studies (201112) With Anonymous Marking feature used. 10 Students Experience of Using TurnitinUK

you can use that positive criticism towards hopefully getting a better mark if you look at your feedback you are able to make improvements and see where you are failing or not doing so well it makes a difference, knowing specifically where you went wrong 11 You can see exactly what you did well and where you

didnt do so well when you next come to write an essay youve learnt from previous attempts that was really good, just one click, mark, feedback, done, that was it You can submit it anytime you like Staff Experience of Using TurnitinUK [1] I always feel I always have to justify the mark I award them You have to justify

the mark that youve given, through your feedback, so that students can understand how to improve 12 provides us as lecturers with an aide memoire when the students come and challenge us I did find it quite easy to annotate the script using this

system so I did a bit more Staff Experience of Using TurnitinUK [2] I didnt tend to use [QuickMark] its not personal, its not valuable to the student because its not about their work, its about academic work generally there are certain things that I find myself saying over and over

again to the students, but if I find myself writing [a QuickMark] then Id save it in my list so I could use it again you get more insight into how other people are and again marking because you can we can second mark see their comments it very quickly 13 Blackboard Rubrics Development of whole-school approaches: Blackboard interactive rubrics: 2012-13:

Used by 1 school (School of Health Studies). One modules coursework marked and moderated. Staff generally positive about: Ease-of-use of rubrics; Speed of marking; Rubric features (spell checker!). 14 Issues Encountered Drivers: University policies relating to the administration of assessment; Not centred on pedagogy. eMarking exposes flexible processes and practices

relating to manual submission. Requires a change to attitude and practice: Health & safety fears. Learning curve. Technical, including: Staff digital literacy or lack of! Off-line anonymous marking. 15 Way forward? Proposal for the University: Formative personalised feedback in advance of summative assessment. Summative assessment marked anonymously

against assessment criteria with general comments. 16 Question time [email protected] [email protected] 17
