• Feedback individually to students, on an activity or draft prior to summative assessment
• Online automated feedback
• Peer review activities
• Self-assessment activities
Students will be expected to complete daily homework and translation assignments. These are reviewed/assessed in class meetings. Explicit feedback on translations will be given at least once a semester. The Final exam will comprise one previously-seen translation and unseen translation, so that we are able to assess whether you can read Old English. Please note, class attendance is crucial to receiving a good mark in this module, as most feedback occurs during class sessions.
