You told us
The 2012 National Student Survey highlighted that there was room for improvement in relation to assessment and feedback in the School of Health Sciences.
What we did
A review has taken place across the School of Health Sciences looking at the amount and type of feedback provided to students. As a result, all students now receive an assessment calendar which includes:
- Dates for all module assessments for the year (written and practical examinations, as well as assignment submission dates).
- Dates when feedback from assessments will be received.
- Dates when students will have the opportunity to undertake practice practical examinations, academic writing and practice examination questions to get feedback in preparation for the module assessment.
- Dates for support sessions for assessments.
The increase in opportunities for practice assessments and feedback is a direct result of the review, and the initial feedback received so far has been positive, with students commenting that they have found the calendars helpful.
