e-Exams Symposium 2018

An e-Exam Symposium (mini conference) will be held Saturday 24 November 2018, in Melbourne, Australia.

This culminating event will feature a series of sessions discussing the issues and solutions to delivering on authentic e-exams including the pedagogy, technology, logistics and student experience of e-Exams. Two international guest speakers have been invited to share their experience of implementing e-exams in university and for national matriculation exams. The experiences and lessons learnt from over 20 e-exam trials run at multiple Australian universities will be on show. Take the opportunity to network and share with others looking at how to deliver on the promise of scalable, pedagogically valid, secure computerised exams.

The e-Exams Symposium will run just prior to the ASCILITE2018 conference (to be held just west of Melbourne in Geelong) making this an excellent opportunity to attend both education technology events in the one trip!
