Abstract

The number of engineering students at the University of the West of England has increased substantially over the last few years and this has in part led to challenges in the delivery and monitoring of students taking the Engineering Mathematics module. We have used e-Assessment in the form of weekly formative practice tests, summative tests spaced through the year and a January exam under controlled condition to promote engagement in the module. This approach has enabled us to efficiently identify students who were either struggling with the module or disengaging from it and so enabled us to get some such students back on track with the module in a timely manner.
