• Group/class feedback, post-assessment
• Online automated feedback
Feedback on both MCQs in the form of correct answers to the quizzes will be released online two weeks after each quiz ends, and once any in-term resits have been completed. Students are encouraged to review all their answers, and to take particular note of the correct answers to the questions they answered incorrectly. Students will also receive class feedback on the MCQ during lecture hours. This feedback will concentrate on helping students to understand the correct answers to questions that were answered incorrectly by more than 30% of students. The end-of-term project will be assessed using a qualitative rubric attached to the letter grade awarded. Any exceptional comments that concern issues around academic integrity or late submission will be recorded individually and separately. Any student who fails the assessment will receive an explanation as to why.
