Abstract / Description

In this article, the intended learning outcomes and currently employed methods of assessment and feedback in two undergraduate modules will be reviewed - the modules in question being two "quantitative" modules - Introduction to Econometrics and Applied Statistical Methods. In the process, some key academic literature on formative assessment will be examined and recommendations made for enhancements to the learning process in these particular modules. The enhancements consist of a series of diagnostic and adaptive formative assessment activities that were originally inspired by the deliberations that occurred during a group project undertaken as part of a professional learning and teaching course at London Metropolitan University. The ideas produced in that forum were later refined by the author in discussion with colleagues and are presented here.
