Individual Progress Interviews as a Method of Effective Student Feedback

Mary Frances Tatner


Level 3 students on the Microbiology/Parasitology/Virology/Infection Biology degree course at the University of Glasgow are given a 15 minute interview by a member of staff, early in Term 2. The students bring their portfolio of assessed work with them and their progress and utilisation of the feedback received is reviewed. Advice is given on how they can improve their grades and individual targets set. The atmosphere is encouraging and supportive and students appreciate the individual attention they are given. Although very demanding of staff time, the interviews are felt to be an excellent way of providing feedback and support to students.
