Changes to tutor’s assessment approaches across higher education in UK and Europe

Impact: Impact - for External PortalEducation


The impact of MacLellan’s research conducted at Strathclyde, 1998-2000 is changed tutor conceptualisation of assessment. Tutors view and conduct assessment in more elaborated ways (rather than solely in detached and summative terms) through integrating assessment feedback into their pedagogy and through recognising valid assessment to be partly informed by student engagement. Impact is not in the use of particular assessment applications, but in tutors reflectively characterising their pedagogical practice to take account of specific assessment contexts, tasks and students in their care. This in turn is evidenced in the scholarly accounts of practice reported in the applied field of Education/Academic practice.
