Many institutions struggle to provide truly developmental support for learners because of difficulties in storing and accessing feedback at a programme level. This is a particular problem for personal tutors who need to understand how students are performing across a range of units, but may not teach on any of those units and thus do not have access to any of the marks or feedback.
This topic has recently generated a lot of discussion on the ALT list. One of the good examples shared was from Tim Neumann at the Institute of Education:
On behalf of Gwyneth Hughes, Project Director:
We have been piloting storing and accessing feedback in Moodle as part of a JISC funded Assessment Careers project. This has not been at all straightforward and there is by no means a centralised system but a report on the Moodle plug in pilot and how the process was received by staff and students can be found at http://jiscdesignstudio.pbworks.com/w/file/84707434/AssessmentCareers_Report-ToolsToSupportAC_2014-08.pdf
My additional notes:
Thanks to the project above, we have a relatively straightforward access route to all assessment and feedback stored digitally with the VLE (Moodle) as the aggregator. A student view is not yet implemented, but unless I’m wildly overestimating coding issues, it should be relatively straightforward to create. This however does not include post-exam-board data (i.e. the grades that really count), for which we would need a full VLE-SIS integration – our approach leaves a door open for that, but this project is still in its very early stages.
There is more on this topic including further examples on p34 of the EMA Landscape report http://repository.jisc.ac.uk/5599/1/EMA_REPORT.pdf
Do you have any experiences to share?
