  • Workshop

We will use home exams for the upcoming exam (and re-exam) season. It can be a big challenge to change from the standard exam hall style, under very controlled circumstances, to one where the student is at home, giving us less control over the situation.

How can we do this change in a good way, without losing control over the quality of the assessment, or "lowering the bar" for grades?
Can we take this opportunity to develop our examination forms to even improve the quality of assessment?
Can we do this without increasing the workload too much?

We will discuss the possibilities, and work on planning the examination of our courses, with inspiration from colleagues. (You can also find some inspiration at https://bit.ly/2XQPOzu.)

Welcome to the workshop!
