Poor quality feedback is a frequent complaint from students. A common theme is that they receive insufficient and poor quality feedback on their work. Feedback can be provided in many ways, for written assignments online submission and marking provides opportunities to address this problem. Digital drop boxes provided by most VLEs offer limited submission, marking and feedback functionality. We are developing an institutional system for submission, marking and feedback of comments of open ended assignments in which are building on good practice to improve feedback.
