#reflection on Assessment Writing

What did I learn today? That when writing assessments, especially with software involved, you need to be VERY specific with instructions.
How was it useful? I have given second year students assignments, these are experienced students who are used to taking instructions. However, a number of them are having problems with field names and variables because they are not following naming conventions from the instructions
What thoughts came up? It’s something I have come across before but I have to be careful as there is a thin line between giving someone instructions and giving them the answer.
What did you learn? I need to test my assessments much more, I was sure this one was "bullet proof", I need to re-think some of my assessments as there is a breakdown in communications I need to fix it, it is not the student’s responsibility.
What will you do with the information i.e. what next? Review my instructions and take so time to assess and feedback myself on assessments after I have corrected them. Look for issues and areas for improvement.
