The purpose of this study was to pilot and develop a marking strategy, enabling students to engage with assignment feedback beyond a superficial recognition of their assessment grade. Tutors and students developed a bespoke feedback sheet. Students used the template as a tool to help review work before submission, providing clear guidance regarding how their work would be marked and thus engaging students in reflective practice as part of their assignment preparation. Recommendations include extending the study to a wider sample and examining the effectiveness and impact of the marking template in relation to students’ perceived improvement in academic study.
