BRYAN and GLASFURD-BROWN, 2005. The SPRInTA Project: Supporting Student Assessment through a Portal. IN: Proceedings of the 9th CAA Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
The SPRInTA Project (Student Portal Resources for Innovative Targeted Assessment), is a two year project at the University of Essex funded through the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) as part of Phase 5 of the Fund for the Development of Teaching and Learning (FDTL). The SPRInTA Project aims to develop tutorial guidance and formative assessments for undergraduate Sports Science Students. These resources are being made available via the University’s institutional student portal, enabling targeted support for assessment and providing a stimulating learning environment. The Project will disseminate these outcomes and findings to three cognate disciplines and eight Sports Science institutes.
This short paper details the overview and progress to date of the project, with particular reference to a pilot that the project ran involving the development of a large formative Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) bank for a first year Human Physiology Module, BS155
