Event Summary:

Whether you give formative or summative feedback, using technology can be a real time-saver. In the workshop, we will explore areas including:

  • The use of audio feedback, employing tools such as Screen-cast-O-Matic.
  • Using a range of functionalities in Turnitin, including:
  • Setting up a bank of QuickMarks comments
  • Importing an assessment rubric.
  • Linking feedback comments with QuickMarks and rubrics.
  • Releasing feedback to students.

Personal Notes from Event:

What do we mean by feedback?

  • Summative
  • Formative – To develop skills and expertise but does not count
  • Formative – (En-route) – supports feedback to summative tasks

Feedback starts on day one, as part of the teaching and learning practice, can be used to simulate debate and get feedback on learning so fare

Realities of Feeback and Assessment

  • 1 week turnaround
  • 75% First Time Pass

Approaches to Feedback

An Insiders Guide to generation Z and higher education in 2019

Gibbs & Sampson(2004) said that an assessment that supports learning is actually about feedback.

Feedback helps to learn & to teach

Boud & Molloy (2013) Feedback is a process through which learners make sense of various sources to support learning

Tools to Consider

  • Socrative
  • Mentimeter
  • Kahoot
  • TopHat


The workshop focused around the usage of e-tools to facilitate giving effective student feedback, we each shared our own experiences of what tools and practices we currently use to provide feedback, and a productive discussion was had over the how we could use other tools to enhance not only assessment feedback but also formative feedback within session, this has fed into my scheme of work for a upcoming module 212IT Advanced Software Development when they’ll be socrative/kahoot quizess at the end of each session.
