Abstract

This presentation discusses some preliminary findings of a research project currently being conducted by the Student Transition and Retention (STAR) Leads in the Faculty of Business. This aspect of the research focuses on assessment and in particular the impacts of an early upfront assessment and scaffolding of assessment tasks on student learning, behaviour, motivation and success. It covers areas such as how students approach learning and what role assessment tasks play in their study. Discussion points for participants will centre around how we can design assessments that facilitate learning, enhance motivation and improve their success.
