We invite all interested students at Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3, as well as Students’ Union officers & staff from, and beyond, the School of English to discuss alternative assessment practices with us.

Our first series of workshops will take place on Wednesday 8th March, in the Richard Roberts Building, room B81.  This will be divided into two parts:

  1. ‘Feedback’, from 1-2.30pm, led by Josh, without staff presence, in which L1, L2, L3 students are encouraged to bring along copies of their past assessment papers (the rubric & set questions) for each respective module as basis for asking questions about assessment practice, with reference to the questions below.
  2. ‘System’, from 2.45-4pm, (students + staff + Students’ Union representatives), circling around the various problems of doing assessment, what type of learning assessment practices might favour, the correlations between mental health and a system of marketised HE, obsessed with endless performance reviews, data analysis, programme specifications, Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO).

Please see the Call for Papers for further information.

Light refreshments will be provided.
