It is widely recognised that rapidly received feedback on assessment tasks has an important role to play in underpinning student learning and encouraging engagement. Within the Open University (OU), increasing use is being made of interactive computer-marked assignments (iCMAs) alongside more conventional tutor-marked assignments (TMAs).
This paper draws on the experience of the Open University level one course S104: Exploring Science which is making use of the iCMAs in their summative assessment.
