e-Exam Symposium 2018: Trade-offs, benefits and costs (session 5)

e-Exam Symposium 24 Nov 2018: Session 5

Presenters: Dr Andrew Fluck (University of Tasmania) and Dr Mathew Hillier (Monash University)

This session explores some important tradeoffs in setting priorities in a business case for e-Exams. Administrative imperatives to save costs versus pedagogic imperatives to enhance the efficacy of assessment can be seen as conflicting. Similarly a triad of assessment authenticity, integrity and scalability presents challenges with many currently available solutions focusing on the latter two at the expense of the former. This condurum can be thought of as 'good, quick, cheap - pick two'. We argue for a re-balancing of the tradeoff to not forget the pedagogy!

Hosted by Professor Geoff Crisp, University of New South Wales and Dr Mathew Hillier, Monash University. Duration 30 minutes.
