Workshop Effective Digital Assessment

This workshop is postponed due to the corona limitations. You will be contacted when a new date has been set. This workshop will offer some rules of thumb for composing a good exam and good (open or closed) exam questions. As an exercise, we will critically examine your past exam questions, looking for ways to improve them and learn how to write even better questions in future. We will also get our hands dirty: you’ll learn how to transfer your exam questions into Remindo and use them to compose an assessment. You’ll also learn how to re-use your questions in later assessments. By working this way, you will start to build a database of questions and answers that will benefit you for years to come. You will be working on your own questions in the workshop. Bring one of your past (summative or formative) assessments with you! You will also need to bring your own laptop. The deadline for signing up is the monday before the workshop The workshop is usually conducted in Dutch. If you’d prefer to take it in English, please email dp.educate-it@uu.nl for a personal appointment.
