We have funding from the HEA for a seminar on self-assessment that we (Tony Gardner-Medwin and me) are running at the OU in Milton Keynes on 11th June 2012.
It’s a really interesting topic and we have some excellent speakers lined up. How does testing affect learning – for good or ill? What part does ipsative assessment have to play? How about certainty-based marking? And there will be an update on the Moodle quiz engine.
