Transforming Assessment web seminar Wednesday 7 Nov 2012
Title: Automatic assessment of mathematics
Presenter: Dr Christopher Sangwin (University of Birmingham, UK)
In this free session Chris will describe and demonstrate the STACK question type in Moodle which is designed to assess algebraic mathematics. The basic design requires students to respond with an algebraic expression, rather than using multiple choice questions and can randomly generate versions of problems, establish the properties of any answers and generate outcomes, such as feedback. This serves to increase range of valid assessments in methods-based courses and mathematical subjects. Discussion of the changes in student behaviour will also be covered.
Wednesday, 7 November 2012 at 07:00AM UST/GMT (Duration approx 1 hour).
