Formative feedback

Study and communications skills for the biosciences Yesterday evening I "marked" 20 student reports. Formative feedback only, no marks.

So quick, so easy. And in contrast to ages spent agonizing over marks (and fielding student challenges and complaints about marks) it felt so worthwhile.

I hope the students feel the same way without the safety blanket of a deceitful percentage score.
