Teacher stories: "How I replaced one proctored campus exam with a home exam"

In this Lunch ‘n’ Learn webinar, Viggo Kann describes how quizzes and master's tests, with written and oral presentation, can successfully replace proctored campus exams, even in courses with large student groups. The starting point for the webinar is the course Algorithms, data structures and complexity.

Time: Tue 2020-09-29 12.15 - 13.00

Lecturer: Professor Viggo Kann, EECS, KTH

Location: Online via Zoom:

(This webinar will be held in Swedish and will be recorded)

A peer-reviewed theory quiz and two individual master's tests

Both the theory part and the problem part of the exam in the course Algorithms, computer structures and complexity  have been replaced by another examination: a peer-reviewed theory quiz and two individual master's tests. The course is compulsory for the third year students of the computer technology program with over 200 registered students. The examination form has been developed over a long series of years and will not take place on campus to any extent this autumn. The assessment is made according to carefully specified assessment criteria and the examination is fitted into the course so that the students will learn as much as possible.
