• Feedback individually to students, post-assessment
• Group/class feedback, post-assessment
• Peer review activities
For a relatively small MEngSc class, it shall be possible to give some written feedback on assignments to all students individually (e.g., a few sentences, preferably with constructive criticisms and advice for future work). There can be the possibility of a brief meeting, if the student so wishes, and at the discretion of the lecturer/coordinator.
