|Up a level|
This activity invites English lecturers to mark sample student work and use the process as a springboard for considering approaches to marking more generally. It consists of three parts: 1. An overview of the activity; 2. An activity that can be carried out by individual lecturers; 3.An activity that can be done with a group (useful to leaders of accredited courses).
This Collection is the third of seven that make up 'The Pool', a selection of Open Educational Resources designed to support the professional development of English lecturers. This collection of activities for individuals and groups aims to provoke thought about the role of assessment and feedback in undergraduate English programmes. Of interest to lecturers at different career stages (especially those just setting out), and to leaders of accredited courses.
Here is a set of comments I use frequently when giving feedback to students. It's designed for EFL writers with an English level equivalent to IELTS 5.5 or above. The links are to sites I regularly use in teaching, and the recommended books are available in my university library. Feel free to adapt according to your students' level, needs and available resources. There are different ways you could exploit the comments set: 1. (on paper) as a cover sheet when returning written work. 2. (in Microsoft Word) as the basis for creating AutoText entries, which you can quickly insert into Comments when reviewing electronic copies of your students' work. 3. (in Turnitin) as the basis for creating a QuickMark set in GradeMark. I've appended the .qms file so if you're already a Grademark user you can download then import it into your own Quickmark library and modify as appropriate.
