Further Information

In years 2 and 3 of the program the students were involved in choosing project titles, devising assessment schemes, and assessing each others work. This proved very effective. A survey showed they found the objectives clear and understandabe, and there was a clear distinction between the final grades of those students who chose to engage with this work.


The results of experiments in self-assessment and peer assessment formed the basis of a presentation and a paper to the Engineering Education Skills Conference at Hatfield.
