Assessment & Feedback Cases

Abstract

Students work in groups and design a collaborative Wiki (PBWorks) based on a chemical molecule of choice. The choice of molecule is restricted to ones supplied by the lecturer. The groups form on their own and the majority of the work takes place outside of contact hours. The lecturer can monitor student engagement and activity through the Wiki history. Mid way through the assessment period (week three of a six week assessment window), the academic provides written feedback on the progress of the students’ Wiki by posting to the Wiki. The best Wikis may be entered into an external competition for “molecule of the month”. An individual score is awarded, based on a grading rubric. This grade contributes 40% of the overall module mark.
