Course Description

Have your students ever told you your exams didn't test what they expected, seemed unfair, or were too hard? Exams and quizzes can serve an important role in assessing student learning, however, many tests are unclear, hastily constructed, and not aligned with course learning objectives. In this workshop we will examine issues with current testing practices and offer tips and strategies for more successful results.
