The group will exchange practices and experiences to support and encourage the use of innovative methods in assessment and feedback with particular emphasis placed on formative assessment, provision of feedback, efficiency in assessment, innovations including e-assessment and e-support for assessment

4 CENTRE FOR EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING & LEARNING: ASSESSMENT FOR LEARNING LEARNING AND TEACHING SUPPORT / STUDENTS UNION External Examiners Seminar, 26 th January 2009 Comment from AEG Student Rep I feel this group is very important for students to be a part of, because then we are not in the dark on issues which will be affecting the student body. Although I have only been to one session out of the two I feel that as students we are allowed and have our say on matters arising and 99% of the time this is received with greatest of respect, and is responded to accordingly.
