We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new guide on technology-enhanced assessment and feedback which has a focus on FE and skills. This new guide complements our existing suite of resources on technology in assessment and feedback, providing an up-to-date snapshot of practice across this diverse sector. The guide contains a rich variety of case studies and includes a podcast by Jayne Holt, assistant principal of Walsall College, on integrating college systems to track learners’ progress.
The message from the guide is clear: organisations, teachers, trainers and learners can all benefit from a technology enhanced approach to assessment and feedback. However, our e-assessment survey report (May 2016) reveals that some are yet to appreciate the full benefits. The overall picture, particularly for tracking systems and e-portfolios, is mixed, as is the ability of organisations to integrate their various technologies to maximise potential efficiency gains. For this reason, our latest guide to assessment and feedback focuses specifically on the needs of the FE and skills sector, with our assessment and feedback lifecycle model as its starting point.
