UTS VCLT Grant 2017: Investigating the diagnostic potential of a science benchmarking task

SPARKlogoSmllTrns

The project will investigate student outcomes of a flipped learning ‘benchmarking’ activity in which students are asked to grade and give feedback on sections of assignment that they subsequently write their own versions of.  Prior investigation highlights the enormous benefits of this kind of task, but rarely are outcomes quantitatively evaluated to inform future practice.  This project aims to use a large dataset from Biocomplexity at UTS to inform ongoing development of this learning strategy, particularly in supporting students and tutors in giving high quality feedback, targeting feedback to students and providing diagnostic insight to instructors to support their understanding of the students’ areas of strength and weakness.
