Perhaps consider allocating marks for partnership work - students may be more likely to contribute to WIKI
Recommendation
Allocate marks for WIKI contributions.
Action Taken
Marks were allocated for Wiki contributions and the contributions from students did improve. Students, therefore, had a wider range of resources to draw from for their assessment.
