Support and mark assessments

scaffoldAssessment is a key focus for students and therefore a focus for activities and teaching in the topic. Refer to the sub-chapters for the assessment tool that supports these assessment types.

Supporting assessment activity
  • Students will benefit from you sharing tips for effective study habits and encouraging students to share theirs (eg time management, breaking down the tasks into manageable chunks). Whilst there is nothing like personal experience, you may want to refer students to the relevant study and writing guides provided by the Student Learning Centre, or encourage them to share resources they find useful
  • Use announcements, forums and chat rooms to support (scaffold) student preparation of assignments and other assessment tasks.


How you mark the assessment will depend on the assessment type (post/s in a forum, quiz answers, file submission via the assignment dropbox, other).
