Using Open-book Exams To Support Learning, Motivation, and Performance

Nov 18 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Research shows that open-book exams can enhance critical-thinking and learning retention, reduce testing anxiety, and even decrease academic dishonesty. Yet, how we implement open-book exams into our courses can have a huge effect on whether or not students experience such benefits, and to what extent. In this workshop you will learn strategies for creating open-book exams that can improve student performance and motivation.

For Future Faculty Program participants, this session fulfills the “Assignments, Assessment, and Active Learning” requirement.
