Partnership in the classroom in a college/university – a recognition of partnership in curriculum design, curriculum delivery and assessment and feedback



Assessment criteria with consensus are authentic criteria: students as partners in assessment grading and feedback - University of Abertay

This project focused on student input to the assessment process. In the third year psychology module students have devised and contextualised assessment criteria to supplement the university’s standard attainment descriptors. The assessment was a group poster with shared grade submitted electronically and finally presented at a public conference organised by the class. The project has been recognised for its innovation and the levels of student input and engagement.
