Resource description

‘AFFIRM’ is part of Leeds Met’s efforts to promote research-informed teaching. A pilot project, it is concerned with computer-assisted assessment (CAA) related to the teaching of research methods. Over a 12-month period in 2007-8 it will create, test and evaluate a small computerised bank of quality-checked items to support undergraduate and taught postgraduate-level research methods teaching. Although the items are likely to have several potential uses, i.e. to be ‘reusable learning objects’ (RLOs), their primary function will probably be as components of various types of formative assessment. To enhance their effectiveness in this, particular efforts will be made to ensure items provide rich formative feedback to learners. In addition, they will contain metadata’ (descriptive information about the item) to assist location and selection. This literature review, written at an early stage, is intended to inform the design and execution of the project.
