Lunch hour seminar: Assessment system used in Foundations of Abstract Mathematics I and II

By , August 14, 2013 10:35

On 26 August Dr Zurab Janelidze from the Mathematical Sciences Department will present a seminar on a very innovative assessment system used in Foundations of Abstract Mathematics I and II.

The assessment system used in Foundations of Abstract Mathematics I and II (second and third year modules offered by the Department of Mathematics Sciences) is in some sense a new type of flexible assessment system that recognizes the student diversity (some are more interested in the subject, some are less talented, etc.) and assesses the progress that an individual student makes in the course, instead of assessing student’s ability compared to peers. Such an assessment system should help to encourage the weaker students and at the same time grow the enthusiasm of the stronger ones. We will discuss how well this has been achieved in the last two years that the assessment system is used.

All interested academics in the Faculty are invited to attend.

Time: 13:00 -14:00

Venue: AI Perold Building Seminar room 2005

Tea and coffee provided. Feel free to bring your lunch.
