Primary ITT: Student Choice

Giving students a choice of genre/ format through which to respond to the assessment title with appropriate mapping. Some modules intend to present students with a limited choice of genre / format through which they can respond to the same assignment title and module learning outcomes. The programmes involved will ensure that this activity is carefully mapped to ensure that all students develop the appropriate graduate skills and have equal opportunities to achieve highly.

What is the likely impact?

We anticipate that this approach would have a positive impact on

  • students’ perceptions of the quality of their programme and its match to their needs and strengths; and student outcomes.
