  • Course-Wide Exams in the Basic Course: To Test, or Not to Test?

Presenter: Cassandra Secrease-Dickson (Indiana University)

Abstract:

This roundtable discussion focuses on the role of traditional, course-wide exams in the Basic Course. Some argue that exams are problematic in a course where much of the work required of students takes the form of a public performance.

We wrestle with these ideas through a lively and collegial debate involving active audience participation.
