      I aimed to investigate how to achieve:
      • a greater student understanding of essay style coursework requirements and particularly accompanying assessment criteria
      • better performance on essay style coursework
      • an understanding of whether students transfer this greater understanding to other courseworks.

      Specific research questions addressed:
      • Would development of a dialogue between tutor and students assist a greater understanding of assessment criteria in essays set?
      • Would the use of peer and self assessment help this process of improving understanding of assessment criteria?
      • Would active engagement of students in reviewing past exemplars of student essays help this process of understanding assessment criteria?
      • Would a greater understanding of assessment criteria improve performance?
      • Would students be able to ‘feed forward’ into future courseworks from past experience and demonstrate a reflection on their work to improve performance?

      I undertook this intervention with Accountancy undergraduate students on:
      • two honours level modules with an eight-week common teaching period in term 1. The modules were Advanced Corporate Reporting (ACR) and Evaluating Corporate Reports (ECR)
      • a discursive area covering accounting theories underpinning practices in accounting
      • 66 students, most of whom took part in the first stages of the process; the full process of intervention was carried out on ECR module with 18 students. .
