 Writing online assessment questions using STACK for mathematics and science

                                       Presented by:

Christopher J. Sangwin- Professor of Technology Enhanced Science Education

  

STACK is a computer aided assessment system with a focus on automatically establishing objective properties of answers which have mathematical content. E.g. establishing that a polynomial, given by the student, is in factored form. Based on these objective properties partial credit, feedback and cohort statistics can be generated.

 This masterclass will have two parts;

(1) Presentation: what is STACK and how is it used?

 (2) Hands-on question authoring (optional) for people who want to stay.

The bulk of the time will be a practical workshop during which you will be expected to author questions online. Participants are expected to register on http://stack.maths.ed.ac.uk/demo and to have used the demonstration course before attending the workshop.
