© 2017 IEEE. E-assessment and tailored feedback are explored in this contribution as a means of encouraging deeper learning and increasing the effectiveness of chemical engineering education within the context of increasing larger cohort sizes in a UK Russel group institution. The results presented here indicate the benefits of both approaches to student learning, detail the implementation aspects and highlight the challenges that remain to be addressed. In addition, the results of a recent iTeach project on evaluating the effectiveness of teaching are discussed from the view point of the methods of assessment currently used. This contribution should therefore be valuable to any (engineering) higher education practitioner wishing to introduce (or extend the use of) either e-assessment or self-reflective tailored feedback in their own practice.
