There have been massive disruptions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the world of Teaching and Learning with an unprecedented need for innovation and agility, especially in the field of assessment. Among the pressing concerns at the forefront of this pandemic has been how to examine students learning at speed and within budget when face to face examinations have not been possible. There have also been concerns about a diminished quality of learning with respect to this unexpected shift to e-learning together with a pressing need to grade students at the end of the academic year.
This webinar will examine some of the approaches to summative assessment which include how to substitute physical assessment with remote technology enhanced assessment. However, with every challenge comes an opportunity which in this case is to rethink changes to assessment processes, working towards a new research agenda.
During the session, we will also discuss:
What is the future of the exam?
What have we learnt about online proctoring?
Is Contract Cheating the Next Normal?
