AustMS/AMSI Teaching Seminar Series
Date & Time: Thursday 9 April 2020, 2:00pm–3:30pm (AEST, GMT+10)
Speaker: Anthony Morphett (Melbourne) and Melanie Robertson-Dean (UNE)
Title: Online assessment and exams in mathematics & statistics
To adapt to an entirely online teaching environment in the face of COVID-19, academics need to convert their assessment into forms that can be completed remotely. A particular challenge is to adapt summative written exams into an online form. In this session, we will describe some options for assessing written mathematics & statistics tasks in a remote learning environment, with particular emphasis on end-of-semester exams. This will include ‘Zoom supervision’ of open-book exams, remote proctoring, and the Gradescope system for submission and marking of exams. There will also be an open discussion of other approaches and technological platforms.
