3 October 2012: Developing spaces for e-assessment: cases from the University of Bradford

Presenter: John Dermo (University of Bradford, UK)

Hosted by Professor Geoff Crisp, RMIT University and Dr Mathew Hillier, University of Queensland, Australia starting 07:00AM UST/GMT. Duration 1 hour, 33 minutes.

This webinar detailed the University of Bradford's innovative 130-seat e-assessment facilities, which use thin client technology and virtual desktops to present secure e-assessments in a flexible learning environment. Whilst these e-assessment facilities are used for invigilated summative e-exams for a few weeks a year, the aim was to create a more flexible space which could also be used for genuine formative e-assessment all year round. This session also looked at some of the interesting and innovative ways in which these facilities are being used by instructors, and outlined a series of cases from the University of Bradford. These include assessing higher order cognitive skills, delivering more authentic assessment tasks, engaging students in collaborative forms of assessment, and exploring ways in which generic, automated feedback can be delivered to large cohorts of students.
