Progress Update + Plans + Good News

The pilot trials were successfully conducted for group assessment of Software Engineering1 module. We interviewed the module leader and the results are being analysed. The results produced by our model were comparable to that of the module leader. The module leader said that he is happy to use the model and tool for future assessments with some adjustments. He stated that he would like the facility to override and adjust the final results produced by our tool. However, he did not think that it is necessary to adopt the split-join invariance principle.

We are now developing an improved version of the tool (version 2) for better performance and usabilty. We also intend to conduct more trials for one or modules after the Easter break.

We are pleased to inform that our proposals for presentations submitted at two conferences were accepted. The two conferences are:

1. AdvanceHE Teaching and Learning Conference 2019 :Teaching in the Spotlight: Innovation for Teaching Excellence, 2-4 July 2019, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne


2. International Assessment in Higher Education (AHE) Conference, 26 & 27 June 2019, Manchester UK.
