Transforming Assessment Webinar: Are typed and handwritten exams equivalent?
October 2, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The next webinar “Are typed and handwritten exams equivalent?” is scheduled for 2 Oct 2019. In moving from handwritten to typed essay-based exams, the salient issue from an academic perspective is equivalence. Taking evidence from the research literature as its starting-point, this seminar explores whether the cognitive processes in, and intellectual outputs of, typed exams can be considered equivalent to those of handwritten exams. If they are not equivalent, what are the implications for the future of exams in tertiary education? This session will be presented by Elizabeth (Liz) Masterman (University of Oxford, UK).
