Director of Assessment and Assistant Professor,

SESSION INFORMATION

Ashley Castleberry, PharmD, MEd

Often the learning process is thought to occur before exams but learning can also happen during and after exams when reviews are carefully designed. This session will explore the features ExamSoft offers to review exams along with a process for taking an "Exam Autopsy" on students performance. Using ExamSoft mapping and reporting features, students receive detailed feedback on their performance and performance an autopsy of their exams to figure out what went wrong and develop a plan for success before the next exam.

Senior Lecturer

Department of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, National University of Singapore

A Senior Lecturer at the Department of Biological Sciences, Teck Keong has been teaching large classes since the start of his career at NUS. In November 2013, he adopted a bring-your-own-laptop digital final examination for his LSM1301 General Biology module. Besides final examinations, he is currently using the digital assessment platform for the weekly in-class quizzes of the LSM1301 General Biology module.

SESSION INFORMATION

SofTest and Examplify at NUS: An End-User’s Perspective

Teck Keong SEOW, PhD

The implementation of the first large-scale bring-your-own-laptop digital final examination for a class of 672 students revealed several shortcomings of the platform that was being used. As a result of that, the Centre for Instructional Technology of NUS explored other alternative platforms, and adopted the SofTest platform from ExamSoft. In this session, the experiences of the adoption, from an end-user’s perspective, will be shared, including some wish-list items.

Born from a relatively basic desire for question-banking software, the Faculty of Medicine at The University of Queensland dived headfirst into a pilot project looking at how a start-to-finish platform such as ExamSoft could transform assessment and feedback in its MD program. This session will explore how an initial, small-scale opt-in pilot expanded to a full cohort roll-out of almost 500 students per exam. It will cover topics such as engaging with students, winning over academic and administrative staff, infrastructure and policy challenges, and of course the educational advantages of transitioning to electronic assessment.   

With a 30-year history in the education of medical students, Dr. Tammy Smith is now the academic lead for years 1 and 2 of the Medicine program at the University of Queensland. She is also Key Administrator and project lead overseeing a large-scale pilot of ExamSoft in the Faculty of Medicine.
