The role of partially-automated assessment in assessing individual contribution to group projects
Group work is generally accompanied by concerns around whether all students are contributing equally or whether some are getting credit for work they didn’t do. Teaching and assessment of a group project which also contained an element of individual work will be described. In a situation where standard e-assessment and exam conditions are not optimal methods for assessing individual work on a topic, an approach to individualised assessment using the partially-automated Numbas ‘worksheet’ mode will be detailed. In addition, this presentation will discuss various methods for measuring individual contribution to group work and their merits, and ask whether this partially-automated assessment approach has a role to play.
