Some possible replacements for unseen, time-constrained, face-to-face invigilated exams. Professor Kay Sambell, Edinburgh Napier University and Professor Sally Brown, Independent consultant.
Targetted and informative document which considers both emergency plans for unseen, time-constrained, invigilated exams to be undertaken remotely and other assessments that are normally undertaken on-site but which couldn’t be held due to lockdown. Whilst the emergency planning phase is now over, this still offers solutions which could be applied for future planning. The aim of the document is to help those who are currently planning for a phased, socially-distanced and gradual return to campus. It includes a comparative table of pros and cons of alternative forms of assessment.
