E-Assessment: Warts and All #uolafwg

E-assessment E-Assessment: Warts and All
17th December 2009 9.30am-3.00pm #uolafwg

The University’s Assessment and Feedback Working Group is holding its second annual workshop day, to examine both the possibilities afforded by e-assessment as well as potential problems and pitfalls. How does e-assessment allow teachers to better manage assessment workloads, and how can it support and enhance student learning? At the same time, we need to understand the limitations and pressure points of e-assessment, what to be wary of, and what to steer clear of.
The day is designed around a judicious mix of workshops and plenary presentations and discussions, so that individuals and departments can explore a range of opportunities they might want to follow up.
The programme presents a rich mix of work being undertaken in the University alongside presentations by national experts and invited presenters. Subject matter will include:
  • The use of e-portfolios
  • An on-line tool for negotiating peer assessment of group work
  • Using aural feedback to aid student learning
  • Using e-assessment comprehensively in a distance learning setting
  • Analysing the state of play in e-assessment
  • E-assessment futures... where we may go next
