• Feedback individually to students, post-assessment
• Group/class feedback, post-assessment
• Self-assessment activities
Feedback on the quality of class participation is given by the module coordinator in the course of the classes, identifying the strong and weak aspects of points made or raised by students. Written comments are provided on each piece of submitted written work. The feedback which students receive in class is designed to improve their analytical skills and identify areas that they may be missing in their readings of the class material. Feedback on the first written assignment provides indications of what a student has done well or less well and thus helps to identify areas of potential improvement.
