Themes In Practice (2)

The following video outlines another of the technology-rich approaches to assessment used in the ESCAPE project. The Weekly Assessed Tutorial Sheet (WATS) approach to assessment has been used elsewhere at UH (I developed the approach and the technologies to support my engineering undergraduates) but it's just great to see it being used here too.

The video is another of the assessment TIP's (Themes In Practice) and has been produced to show how our ESCAPE themes relate to assessment practice.
