The poster will discuss the work undertaken for the Higher Education Academy Development Fund project: 'Efficacy and appropriate use of electronic assessment techniques for computing subjects'. The project is investigating whether innovative electronic assessment methods used for computing students at Sheffield Hallam University, such as phase tests which utilise electronic marking and feedback, enhance students' learning and offer suitable feedback. The project also explores the impact of these assessment methods on staff, especially in terms of time and workload, and their perception of the success of the methods. The project aims to develop an evidence base to inform discussions on how to use these assessment and feedback methods most effectively, and to produce good practice guidance for staff. The poster will summarise the major findings of the research, evaluating the success of the electronic assessment methods and outlining good practice guidelines for any subject group considering utilising phase testing. Members of the project team will be available to discuss the project with attendees and answer any questions that they may have about the practical implications of the research outcomes.
