Abstract

There are many problems associated with large group teaching such as staffing, availability of resources, assessment and administrative issues. One of the purposes of assessment is to diagnose specific misunderstandings in order to help students to learn more effectively (Ramsden,1992). Assuming that a large group is anything over 150 students, the issue of assessment becomes a serious practical problem, especially if one component of the assessment is coursework. The question is how as lecturers can we give timely formative feedback to students when we are dealing with so many scripts? One possible strategy is considered in this paper, which reports on an evaluation of the effectiveness of statement banks as a means of assessing large groups of students.
