Abstract

Through the introduction of Team-Based Learning problem classes and a ‘Purple Pens’ feedback intervention in which students write their own feedback on a mixed formative and summative class test we have been able to observe a significant increase in exam performance in Foundation Year students. Both Science and Health students improved their exam performance by 13% and 11% respectively and both interventions were positively received by students.
