Thu, 5 Dec 2013 8:00 AM - 9:30 AMLocation: Taylor Hall 306WorkshopThis event is also offered on Fri, 6 Dec 2013 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
In this workshop, faculty will focus on the degree to which their exam writing process reflects course content, learning objectives, and student learning. Participants will explore how tools such as learning taxonomies and formative assessments can inform exam construction and format. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and revise their own exam questions using evidence-based strategies.
This workshop is designed for faculty to make progress toward the following outcomes:
- Apply learning taxonomies to current exam questions;
- Align exam questions to specific learning objectives; and
- Develop one or more formative/summative assessment item.
