Existing formative assessment practices in postgraduate courses, such as the exclusive use of essays, may encourage students to adopt undesirable learning habits as they focus on the limited range of knowledge required to complete one or two tasks. In order to create a greater and improved learning experience, it may be necessary to address these practices and alter them so that students submit work on a more regular basis, testing understanding and application across the content of the course. This paper discusses the introduction of continuous assessment at the Honours level, through the use of online material and electronic feedback.
