Results of course experience questionnaires (CEQ) provide Australian tertiary institutions with valuable information on perceptions of their courses. Institutions also survey their students at subject level. This study aimed to determine the degree to which responses recorded on subject level Teaching Quality Indicators (TQI) are related to the CEQ, and whether TQI responses anticipate subsequent CEQ responses. This study found that TQIs at different institutions are not designed in a consistent manner and that only a small portion of the CEQ responses could be predicted by these TQI. The research established that course characteristics such as: the level of the degree, the Faculty and Department in which the course was taken, the course description, the industry and duties of those who have found employment after completing their course, all strongly influence the CEQ.

Quality assessment: linking assessment tasks and teaching outcomes in the social sciences
The framework is diagrammatically portrayed as a circle with the elements of the previously developed Assessment characteristics as the inner circle and a range of factors identified as Student Support and Significance as the outer circle. The purpose of the framework is to enable academics to have increased support in assessment task design. It is located in a philosophy of social constructivism, which needs to be recognised by those using the framework and while generalisable, it is likely to be of particular interest to those teaching in the social sciences. The instructions on the use of the guide are clear, which allows for easy navigation. Explanations and definitions are given of each of the elements of the model and suggestions for the improvement of tasks provide assistance for those coming to assessment de novo. There may be some scepticism about the characteristic of meta-language but it is a useful debate to have, given that it is more particular to education than some other social sciences. The material on significance also is embedded in the philosophical approach and it provides important material on understanding what students bring to learning and how this intersects with assessment. This, together with the Student Support material, brings strengths to the model which are often not considered by academics but which are vital to ensure authentic learning. Explicit quality criteria, high expectations and student direction articulate those areas of assessment which frequently are not considered by academics, to the frustration of students. The elaborations and suggestions for academics are a real strength of this model. The report provides pro forma and samples which add to the value of the resource.

Peer review of online learning and teaching
The project developed an open-source, web enabled peer review tool (PROTL). The PROTL system incorporates banks of standards-based criteria for use in peer review, explanations of the meaning of these criteria, exemplars, and an underlying database that can record peer review results and make them available for promotion or awards. The project website provides resources such as an online manual, detailed guides, tutorials and features of the PROTL system, case studies and publications.

Online Assessment Feedback as an Instument of Reflective Learning Practice in Human Biology
The project team developed an online assessment system for the improvement of evaluation of Human Biology students’ higher level learning and skill development. The project team sought to address the challenge of teaching large classes, by developing a system which will provide a more sophisticated online dialogue with students and improved individual feedback mechanisms. The assessment system extends the aspects of Human Biology that can be assessed online (including laboratory exercises); provides analytical tools (including sets of exemplars and remedial materials); administers richer, more analytical feedback; and embeds reflective practice and self-performance assessment into the feedback component of the online assessment system. The project team have collaborated with partner institutions who have implemented the online assessment tool, in an effort to share evaluation and feedback and make improvements to the system.
