Published on 2018-01-21T02:02:57Z (GMT) by Gavin Brown
This collection focuses on drawings students made about feedback and assessment and which were analysed for their perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs towards those phenomena. This approach has been used by me and my colleagues in New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Brazil.<div><br></div><div>The New Zealand materials arose from the Measuring Teachers' Assessment Practices project funded by the Faculty of Education (as it was then) Research Development Fund that employed Dr Lois Harris as a Post-Doc Research Fellow at the University of Auckland. That work generated the following studies.<div><div>Feedback was published as:<div>Harris, L. R., Brown, G. T. L., & Harnett, J. (2014).
