Extracts on traditional handwritten time-constrained exams

This download shows some of my comments on traditional time-constrained written exams, as in my final manuscript of ‘Making Learning Happen: 3rd edition’ (now at proofs stage and due out in May this year) and a short extract from ‘The Lecturer’s Toolkit: 3rd edition’ (2007) presently being revised for a new edition in 2015. Exams extracts (1071 downloads) There are also extracts from the latter revised source in some recent posts on my site.
(In both books, I then go on to analyse in a similar way many different assessment formats, including structured exams, OSCEs, essays, reports, portfolios, presentations and so on).
