Student experience and effectiveness of semiautomated, personalized feedback

Chris Wilson, Alessandro Soranzo

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


Despite increasing research into the topic, students report that feedback is often difficult to understand, while time pressure on academics limits the detail that can be provided. Software that enables feedback to be constructed in a semi-automated fashion (e.g. Turnitin GradeMark) aims to speed up the process by providing a database of pre-determined comments – potentially useful for psychology reports, which are written in a standard format. However, there has been limited research on the effectiveness of these tools. The current project will test the use of a semi-automated feedback program across all levels of an undergraduate psychology course

The project is in its early stages and this contribution will focus on the background to the project, aims and methodology.
