Who should attend?

Please note that this workshop was called 'A Practical Guide to Setting and Marking Assessments' prior to the 2020-2021 academic year.

This workshop is designed for staff who set questions, design assessment tasks and/or mark students’ answers for examinations or other assessment contexts. In particular, this workshop is for staff who are new to setting and marking exams and other summative assessments, and for those who want to review their existing practice.

We will address a range of key considerations when summatively assessing students including: devising unambiguous assessment questions of an appropriate level and type, developing and using mark schemes/rubrics, supporting students in preparing for assessment and recognising marking pitfalls.

Participants should aim to also attend the Introduction to Assessment for Active Learning workshop and the Practical Guide to Giving Effective Feedback workshop which are intended to complement this session.
