Formative e-assessment in Economics

Mel Powell, University of Derby

A progressive set of computer-based formative assessment materials with extensive learning materials and feedback were created for a cohort of first year full-time students studying economics on business programmes. The materials were used to support private study and did not replace lectures or classes. The aim was to reduce failure rates amongst full-time students through improving self-regulating learning through computer-based formative private study.
