Description

Many individual and group coursework assignments are marked by teams of academic tutors. Achieving a consistency in marking can be a challenge where markers have differences in opinion as to what constitutes a specific grade. Grade descriptors help but are not always consistently applied and are very difficult to write to cover a multitude of tasks.

This aimed to adapt existing School grade descriptors to produce a series of assessment method orientated grade descriptors that can be applied to the assessments within the modules: MMB500 and MMB504.

Deliverables

Project outcomes include: Suggested updates to the Schools generic Grade Descriptors. A set of grade descriptors orientated towards:

  • Oral Presentations
  • Group viva
  • Report
  • Poster
