Exploring bias in assignment feedback – What’s in a name?
Joanne Batey

This research seeks to explore how expectancies related to student’s perceived gender and ethnic origin might impact on the feedback they receive on their assignments. Calls for anonymous marking on the basis of biased marking practices according to gender and ethnicity have been long standing and widespread. However research into this area has generally lacked methodological rigour, produced equivocal findings, and been more concerned with the grades awarded as opposed to the feedback received. Sixty sports studies academics agreed to mark and provide feedback on two first year undergraduate student essays. The first student essay that participants marked was a control essay and was identified as being written by a male with a typically British name. The second essay that participants marked was the experimental essay. Participants were assigned one of six conditions prior to marking this essay (female Asian; male Asian; female Chinese; male Chinese, female British; male British). Using a mixed methods approach in-text feedback was content analysed utilising Hyatt’s (2005) analytical feedback framework whilst summative feedback was analysed thematically.

Jo Batey is a Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology and Programme Leader for the BSc Sports Studies at University of Winchester. She has worked at International level with the Great Britain archery Olympic development squad
