What We Could Do Before Final Grading: Two Ideas

20 Minute Research Presentation

Presenter(s):

Dr. Ivona Mladenovic – Simon Fraser University

Abstract:

Instructors create and grade exams, but can they prepare exam ‘cheat sheets’ for their students? The presentation will discuss two innovative approaches to engaging learners in lowering their exam anxieties: ‘Write Your Own Exam’, and ‘Final Exam Clinic’. The goal is to promote classroom assessment that empowers learners, not instructors.
