The Exam Debate staff online survey
At the Discover: Teaching and Learning Conference and Exhibition on 29 June 2016, LLI is hosting a debate on the use, purpose and value of examination as a mode of assessment in Higher Education. We want you to be involved in shaping the argument so that we can introduce well considered changes in response to the University strategic imperative to vary the way that we assess our students, and to reduce the volume of exams.
Please share your experience of exams with us. This survey is anonymous, and we only ask you to leave your email if you want to be contacted to pitch your views at the debate. Note: this can be prepared in advance if you are unable to be present on the 29 June.
