Throughout Semester One, The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences has been engaged with the UNSW Assessment Project which examines issues of quality and improvement to improve the design of the Faculty Assessment Tool for Semester Two.
The project involved conducting a time on task trial for both students and staff in 15 selected courses across the Faculty.
170 students were asked to record the amount of time spent completing each specific assessment task through an online diary, which was “extremely useful in assisting FASS with its design of the Faculty assessment tool”, said Professor Sean Brawley, the Associate Dean of Education.
Of the 170 students who took part in project, all were given a gift voucher and put into the draw to win a new iPad 2.
The lucky winner of ththe iPad was Peta Withers, a first year Criminology student, who proudly received her prize from the FASS Dean, Professor James Donald.
