This free workshop aims to bring together educators using digital assessment approaches via a series of talks and round table discussions

Are you currently using technology for assessment in the mathematical sciences or wish to learn more about methods to incorporate into your own teaching?

This free event aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from the mathematical sciences to discuss key issues about assessments and show/promote conditions in which deeper approaches to learning will flourish.

The workshop will consist of a series of keynote talks and demonstrations on the use of digital assessment approaches in the mathematical sciences. This will include topics such as:

  • Creating online assessment integrating mathematics with STACK
  • Assessing first year statistics students using e-tests and an end of module project week - Dr Iain Weir UWE Bristol
  • Formative and summative assessment of peer review tasks using AROPA
  • Experiences with coding assessments using auto-grading and peer assessment
  • Insights into running an online distance learning masters

There will also be two sessions taking place during the day that will focus on a series of lightning talks and related round table discussions offered by attendees at the workshop, who would like to share their experiences or ideas related to digital assessment approaches.
