An article is in preparation which describes the JISC-funded work undertaken at the University of Glamorgan to support students in the management of the totality of their assignments through the deployment of Assessment Diaries and GradeMark. Karen Fitzgibbon and Alice Lau have been working on the assessment of these two initiatives' influence on the planning and management behaviours of Glamorgan's students, as well as the examination of the possible benefits to the staff who teach them.

Karen Fitzgibbon is currently the Deputy Head of the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at the University of Glamorgan. She was involved in the first phase of the Change Academy Project and became the project manager for the second phase of the Change Academy project ‘Putting Assessment at the Heart of Learning'. She is also leading the Higher Education Academy First Year Experience Group which shares good practice on themed first-year student experience initiatives throughout institutions in Wales.

Alice Lau is currently working as a research fellow in the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at the University of Glamorgan. She is responsible for research on assessment at Glamorgan and supports the implementation of the assessment policy. She seeks to make assessment a support for the student learning experience rather than simply a measure of it. Alice was heavily involved in the research for the Change Academy projects. She is currently working on a part-time PhD entitled ‘Assessment for Learning in Higher Education’.
