Putting pedagogy in the driving seat with OpenComment: an open source formative assessment feedback and guidance tool for history students
conference contributionposted on 02.12.2009, 17:02 by Denise Whitelock, Stuart Watt
The Open Comment project sits within an external demand for electronic assessment from policy makers together with the QCA and SQA (see Whitelock & Brasher 2006 and the final report to the JISC on a Roadmap for e-Assessment http://www.jisc.ac.uk/elp_assessment.html). Universities too, together with Further Education establishments, are embracing e-assessment (see Whitelock et al, 2006). There is a recognition that e-assessment accompanied by an appropriate feedback to the student is beneficial for learning (DiBattista et al, 2004; Pitcher el al., 2002; Whitelock & Raw, 2003). Distance Learning too is forging ahead with electronic delivery of courses together with addressing the complexities of e-assessment for large cohorts of students.
