‘Student engagement’, defined as students’ involvement with activities and conditions likely to generate high-quality learning, is increasingly understood to be important for higher education quality. This report presents the first insights into students’ engagement in higher education in Australasia.
This study focuses on the 'assessing' aspect of tertiary teaching in a distance teacher education programme. It explores the perceptions of the role of written assessment feedback held by a cohort of students enrolled in The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood Education (a Level 7, distance teacher education programme using mixed delivery methods). The findings relate strategically and practically to other teacher education programmes—such as online programmes—by giving teacher educators a greater understanding of the nature and extent of written assessment feedback.
