Assessment within development events as evaluation of researcher support programmes

Gough, A.Martin (2009) Assessment within development events as evaluation of researcher support programmes. In: Vitae researcher development conference 2009, 8-9 Sept.2009, University of Warwick. (Unpublished) (KAR id:24475)


I shall present for the first 10 minutes some interim findings, derived from a research project currently being funded by the Centre for Excellence in Preparing for Academic Practice, on the question of the appropriateness of assessment in development events which do not lead to an award. The project has been exploring the experiences of newer researchers on this matter. For the latter part of the session, participants will engage in open-ended discussion considering their reactions to these findings in the context of skills and development provision at their own institutions. This will be with a view to articulating the pros and cons of types of assessment, for different areas of development, in programmes with and in programmes without an award, and whether to have grading and pass/fail outcomes. The discussion will inform the ongoing project further.
