Abstract

This desktop research commissioned by the Higher Education Academy set out to consult with the academic community about which references on assessment and feedback with technology- enhancement were most useful to practitioners. While all the recommended publications may be characterised as reputable and the majority were peer-reviewed (67.7%), only a minority provided quantitative data (28.2%), of which relatively few provided appropriate experimental designs or statistical analysis (18.5%). The majority of publications were practitioner-led case studies. The references that were recommended to us are clearly having an impact on current practice and are found valuable by practitioners. The key messages from these sources are consistent and often give detailed and practical guidance for other academics. We found that most of the recommended literature focused on the goals that technology-enhancement can enable assessment and feedback to meet and how assessment and feedback can be designed to make best use of the technology.
