A very interesting article about the SATs taken a few days ago by many schoolchildren including my own son:
Students of E303 and E844 might see links with some of the concerns of their courses.
I am now about half way through the marking for E844 e-TMA 1. Having done it eight times before, it is interesting how similar the assignments are the first time and how much most (but not unfortunately all) students seem to develop over the year.
Problems with the first assignment tend to be that some students over emphasise experience and what they already know without fully engaging with the course material - they seem to be lead by experience rather than the course content.
Some students do not refer to the course content enough in the first assignment. I hope that feedback will encourage them to do so more.
