Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: Creating questions for student assessment on homework or exams often proves difficult. In this workshop, we will discuss the multiple potential goals of assessment questions and how we can construct questions to achieve those goals. We will think about the strengths and weaknesses of the different kinds of questions that are often used to assess student comprehension. We will also consider how the issues of managing grading and giving feedback can influence your construction of homework and exam questions. In addition to these general discussions, this session will include hands-on question generation.
