The International Journal of Assessment and EvaluationDr Christopher Wiley‘s article ‘Divided by a Common Language? Evaluating Students’ Understanding of the Vocabulary of Assessment and Feedback at a Single UK Higher Education Institution’ has been published in the May 2014 issue of The International Journal of Assessment and Evaluation.

Based on educational research conducted during his time at City University London, Dr Wiley’s article represents the published version of his paper delivered at the Nineteenth International Conference on Learning, Institute of Education, London on 16 August 2012 (see here for details).

Drawing on a series of interviews and consultations, the article reviews students’ understanding of the vocabulary of assessment and feedback in order to establish the extent to which it aligns with the sense intended by academic institutions in using this terminology. Dr Wiley identifies a series of recommendations for future enhancements to assessment and feedback practices to relieve the present disjunctures between university staff and students.
