Abstract

Assessment is central in effective teaching. This research sets out to discover the impact and effectiveness of timely assessment and feedback on student performance and engagement. Qualitative and quantitative data is collected from two cohorts of students with different levels of engagement. We have shown that more regular feedback and engagement resulted in a significantly improved pass rate and average mark. In conclusion, enabling timely assessment and feedback can improve student performance and give educators tools that make this process more manageable.
