An issue for assessment quality in higher education
Appendix A: Verbal report characteristics
The table below shows, for each assessor, the characteristics of each verbal report in the order in which they were produced: the duration of each report (‘minutes’), total word count (‘words’), and number of words per 10 minutes. ‘Prompts’ indicates the number of researcher prompts given in each verbal report. Thus, the first report produced in Session 1 by Assessor 1 for example, was 20 minutes in duration, contained a total of 1,570 words uttered at a rate of 785 words per 10 minutes, and was produced without any researcher prompting. ‘Prompt type’ shows which of three types of prompt was given in each instance: prompts to ‘keep talking’, to ‘elaborate’ or to ‘be specific’. (Note details about purpose and wording of prompts are given in Chapter 3, section 220.127.116.11.)
