13 March 2013: e-Exams transforming curriculum

Presenter: Andrew Fluck (University of Tasmania, Australia)

Hosted by Professor Geoffrey Crisp, Dean Learning and Teaching, RMIT University and Dr Mathew Hillier, Teaching and Educational Development Institute, University of Queensland, Australia starting 07:00AM UST/GMT. Duration 54 minutes.

This webinar will introduce a system used in higher education and for pre-tertiary entrance examinations. The advantages include a BYOD (bring your own device) approach for equipment supply and provision of an identical full computer context for every candidate while leaving student owned equipment completely untouched. This makes it very cost effective. The open-source e-Exam System software provides easy innovation adoption. The presenter will discuss ways technology in assessment can provide opportunities for transforming content knowledge in curriculum, and varied approaches to 'fairness and equity' in high stakes testing.
