Small scale interventions supporting student agency - Overview (2018)

Our research was interdisciplinary involving colleagues from across six faculties working in partnership to design innovative feedback interventions underpinned by the EAT Framework using a form of action research. A number of tools to measure student’ development of self-assessment were trialled including the EAT Framework scoring wheel, an assessment literacy scale, a feedback orientation scale. On-going professional development and evaluation were features of the project.
