Transforming Assessment: Reporting on our research on computer-based assessment

The E-Learning Development Team and Department of Education have been collaborating in a longitudinal research study over the past few years, looking at students’ attitudes towards and experiences of the delivery of high stakes computer-based exams at the University of York.  The focus of our research study has been on the factors which might predict students’ attitudes towards this assessment approach, and we have evaluated student experiences across three cohorts of MA students within the Department of Education, from academic year 2013-14 to the current year group (2015-16).

Building on the presentation which we delivered at ALT-C 2015, Zoe Handley and I have updated our findings and presented them in a recorded webinar, as part of the Transforming Assessment series hosted by Prof. Geoff Crisp (University of New South Wales) and Dr Mathew Hillier (Monash University).  The recording of the webinar is now available for viewing, along with a transcript of the chat log and slides from the session. Visit the link below to access the recording.
