BJET Special Issue on e-Assessment

The latest issue of BJET (including an article by Alex Heinze) on e-Assessment gives a broad overview of the topic.  There are several interesting articles, soundly argued but with ideas that can be applied in practice.  I particularly liked the idea in Draper’s article “Catalytic assessment: understanding how MCQs and EVS can foster deep learning” of getting students to write Multiple Choice questions.

Thanks, looks interesting (though you’ve got your internal link to it - … so have to copy the text of the hyperlink, not the URL behind it)

Thanks for that Emma - one of my favourite errors is to cut and paste from Uni webmail - hence the broken links. Should now be fixed.
