The University of Southern Queensland's (USQ's) Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP) is a bridging program designed to enable people to acquire essential prerequisite knowledge and skills required for success in undergraduate study. Students who successfully complete the program qualify for direct entry into specified undergraduate programs at the University of Southern Queensland. Students coming into the TPP bring with them a valuable range of skills and prior educational and life experiences however are often unsure, lacking in confidence and may have encountered learning hurdles in the past. Therefore encouraging and motivating these students is a crucial factor in enabling them to acquire the skills and knowledge they require to transition successfully. Assessment is an integral element of teaching and learning that should enhance learning. Feedback is an essential element in this loop as it has the potential to have a significant impact on students' learning.
