Implementation of Assessment and Feedback in Higher Education
by Shamira Elsayed, Define Cakir

Acta Pedagogia Asia 235 views
The ability of feedback to improve students' performance on a task, their techniques, and their learning has long been recognized in the literature. The primary goal of feedback is to reduce errors, close knowledge and skill gaps, and improve knowledge and skill acquisition. However, a student must use feedback to reach his or her full potential. Therefore, much of the recent feedback research has focused on examining student perceptions of feedback and how they relate to the effective use of feedback. This review provides a comprehensive overview of the literature on feedback perception. Inadequate theoretical frameworks, repetition (but not replication) of research, and methodological flaws in the articles reviewed have led to rather unsatisfactory conclusions. This type of feedback often does nothing to improve student learning experiences. It is time for professors to rethink the practice of commenting. They should move away from conventional methods of providing feedback to students. This study describes some contemporary methods of feedback that can ultimately help students improve their learning experiences. This can also contribute to the professionalization of teachers in higher education. Based on the findings, we propose a framework for further research on students' perceptions of feedback and many future directions for this topic. Full text

Implementation of Formative Assessment in Engineering Education
by Eva Sanchez-Lopez, Joseph Kasongo, Andres Filipe Gonzalez-Sanchez, Ahmed Mostrady

Acta Pedagogia Asia 188 views
Formative assessment is an assessment of student learning that aims to improve students' skills or understanding of certain course themes. Formative evaluations are often conducted in class, can be conducted anonymously, and are typically much more focused on certain abilities or knowledge. This article presents a comprehensive literature analysis on formative assessment in engineering education. As an integrated narrative review, this study's methodology included a systematic search, review, and writing of the literature in order to synthesize the important themes and conclusions of research in this field. The authors selected and reviewed the available literature using qualitative thematic criteria, focusing on the relationship between formative assessment and students' attitudes, FA and self-regulation skills, online formative evaluation, validity, reliability, and dishonesty of assessment, and engagement with critical learning processes. An increase in student involvement and centrality in the process as primary actors, as well as the building of a learning community, are among the cited benefits. According to the primary results, effective online formative assessment can generate a student- and assessment-centered emphasis through formative feedback and enhanced learner engagement with significant learning experiences. In the context of online formative assessment, it has been discovered that ongoing authentic assessment activities and interactive formative feedback are vital for overcoming validity and reliability concerns.
