Formative assessment methods include a combination of the following: student observations, class assignments, projects and presentations, performances, peer reviews, conversations and interviews with students, learning logs, and quizzes and tests.

LINK Research Lab – Welcome to Learning Innovation and Networked Knowledge (LINK) Research Lab. NEXT-TELL. Open University Learning Design. Here you will find information about the Open University's approach to Learning Design.

Open University Learning Design

Learning Design involves a set of tools, views and principles which help guide the curriculum design process and place the student experience at the heart of curriculum design. The Open University is proud to be recognised for the quality of its learning and teaching and invests staff time and production and presentation costs in developing and maintaining its curriculum to ensure that what is offered to students is fit for purpose and delivers institutional priorities.

In order to achieve this, the University has adopted an approach to developing its curriculum called OU Learning Design, which supports a consistent, structured design, specification and review process. It provides a simple set of tools and resources that enable a student-activity based approach that puts the learning journey at the heart of the design process.
