Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

These case studies focus on the ways in which the University examines its students.  This may be formative assessment and how this improves student engagement with material, or it may be in exploring alternatives to the traditional written examination paper.

 

Examination review

The University is undertaking a large-scale review of examination process, to develop a 5-year plan to set the direction on examination policy and operations.  The review will consider modes of assessment, timing, technical investment and use of the estate, preparation and management of examinations.  More details on this review will be forthcoming in due course.
