INDAF – App that generates automated student feedback reports for exams & assessments.

In many University assessments, the only feedback students receive is an overall final mark. INDAF provides students with a more detailed account of their performance in the form of a feedback report. If an assessment can be divided into categories, performance can be rated for each category, giving students more specific information about their strengths and weaknesses within the assessment to improve their performance.
INDAF provides a feature that does not exist in Loughborough’s Learn platform (for students) and it offers users a tool to create customised feedback reports flexibly (than buying several apps to carryout different tasks). INDAF offers options to enable collaborative marking and to customise to a range of assessments. (eg. choice of question number, category number, or exam structure, assessments with optional questions vs essay assessments vs MCQ assessments).
INDAF has been successfully used for one year in three Loughborough University Schools and it could be rolled out more widely in higher education, or in any setting for which performance is assessed and fed back (so also has potential use in industry).
