Designing cheat-proof exams to improve students' higher-level thinking skills
03 Mar 2023
The Institute of Teaching and Learning (ITL) is pleased to announce the release of the first in a series of Project Reports from our 2021/22 cohort of ITL Fellows
Institute Fellows are colleagues from across the University who are appointed annually to deliver short term projects that will support the University in achieving its goals in teaching and learning.
Through working alongside a student partner, and with the full support of ITL colleagues, they are able to engage in practical interventions around various areas of pedagogical practice within Teaching and Learning. The subject of the projects they run can range from distance learning approaches to inclusivity, to conversations around AI and designing better assessment, and when they conclude, the best practice and resources they develop are designed to be disseminated around the instituition.
- Kicking off the series is Professor David Schultz, with his report on: Designing cheat-proof exams to improve students' higher-level thinking skills.
He proposes smarter question construction, that makes the experience of assessment more rewarding for students and staff alike. Each Fellowship Report contains links to a set of key Outputs (recommendations, blog posts, training materials, prototypes, datasets, templates, etc.) that are designed to be of practical benefit to colleagues - we hope you find these useful in your teaching and learning practice.
