Member Event: Transforming Assessment with Adaptive Questions Online

Dates: 
7 March 2012 - 7:00am - 8:00am

Professor Geoffrey Crisp (RMIT University, Australia) and Dr Mathew Hillier (University of Queensland, Australia) invite you to the next live session:

Presenter: Dr Richard (Dick) Bacon (University of Surrey, UK)

Conventional e-problems in physics are being adapted to take advantage of features offered by a new assessment system (SToMP II). These include alternative mal-rule based wrong answers to support targeted feedback and adaptive questions to offer multiple tries. These two features are being used together to transform the assessment experience for many students from one of failure to one of learning and eventual success.

Participants are encouraged to share their ideas and resources.
