7.3.3 Informal and interim feedback

Evaluation methods

Informal feedback

Use the class-based sessions of a blended course to make informal checks on student learning, reserving some time at the beginning or end of a class session to discuss progress and explore aspects of the online tasks to acknowledge online learning that is taking place. A simple alternative is to ‘drop in’ on virtual study tasks, to get a feel for how a discussion or collaborative task is unfolding.

Interim feedback

Selected questions or surveys can be included mid-way through a module, again to help you judge the reception and progress of learning activities.

Interim feedback taken at the end of the first term on a ‘long-thin’ module will also enable adjustments to be made for the subsequent term.
