Every engineering professor inevitably confronts the problem of how to test and assess a large number of students all at once. The amount of time required to manually grade tests can deprive students of adequate time for quality face-to face instructor interactions. On top of the need to effectively test their students, professors also have an obligation to accurately assess what their students are learning, along with their ability to apply classroom theory to solving real-life engineering problems.
This webinar presents a detailed case study of how Dr. Bruce Char and his colleagues at Drexel University overcame the challenge of effectively testing and assessing ~900 students/year using advanced technology solutions in a freshman engineering computation lab. The key new element was the introduction of a web-based testing solution that made it possible to deliver meaningful tests on any subject involving technical content to a large group of engineering students simultaneously.
In this webinar we will illustrate how you can reinforce engineering concepts while effectively testing and assessing students using a combination of programming, modeling and simulation, and advanced testing technologies.
