Taylor, J. D., Dearnley, Christine, Laxton, J. C., Nkosana-Nyawata, Idah and Rinomhota, S. (2012) The Perceptions of Health and Social Care Students of using Mobile 360 Degree Performance Feedback Tools in Practice Placement Settings. International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning, 4 (1). pp. 18-30. ISSN 1941-8647

This study evaluated the students' perspective of using mobile 360 degree performance feedback tools, in Health and Social Care H&SC practice placement settings. By using the tools students are able to record immediate, rich 360 degree feedback of their performance from the different viewpoints of those involved in the assessment scenario. This included a large-scale implementation of mobile technology with over 900 users across a range of professions and clinical settings. The mobile assessment processes and tools are described and the outcomes of the second stage of an action research study related to the benefits and challenges of the mobile delivery are discussed. The authors conclude that mobile assessment delivers a promise for the future in terms of pedagogy and technology.
