The strategy is an Internet based assignment delivery and assessment system designed to (i) equip students to make link between macroeconomic theory and important real-world issues, (ii) develop positive attitudes to the subject (iii) develop deep approaches to learning (iv) develop a facility for critical analysis and problem solving and (v) develop effective study habits. Using a multi-dimensional evaluation strategy, the indications are that the new approach has succeeded in its aims.
