Research output: Other contributionTeaching Development Grants (TDG)

Abstract

This project aims to enhance freshmen's learning engagement and outcomes in General Education (GE) Foundation course by incorporating formative e-assessment (PEA) tasks into tutorial process. A teacher guide on PEA task design and implementation, PEA tasks and cases of using PEA tasks will be developed and refined during the project. GE foundation course is an important course aiming at cultivating undergraduates' generic skills for their future life and work. The efficiency of the course depends on how much the students engage in the course and how well they learn. PEA can enhance undergraduates' learning engagement and outcomes due to the nature of formative assessment and affordance of technology. A quasi-experiment design will be utilized to collect data from at least 12 tutorial groups of GE foundation course. The data will be used to verify the effects of PEA on learning and provide insights for formulate an PEA framework as a reference for assessment innovation in general education at the tertiary level.
