In late February 2015, a facility for performing large-scale digital assessments (up to 480 students at a time) was created in three rooms of the Educatorium. Digital assessments can be performed there safely and reliably using Chromebooks and a secure WiFi network.
Pilot programmes were conducted at a number of different faculties (Life Sciences; Veterinary Medicine; Social and Behavioural Sciences; Geosciences; Law, Economics and Governance; University Medical Center) between March and July 2015. All told, 24 large-scale tests and inspections were successfully completed on Chromebooks at the digital assessment facility.
In June, UU hosted and participated in the national SURF seminar about large-scale digital assessment where the Chromebooks concept was presented and explained.
All faculties will have access to the digital assessment software and facilities from September 2015. Faculties will receive operational support (technical, functional and didactic) from ITS and the Centre for Education and Learning as they implement digital assessment.
The following people have been designated to provide support for teachers as they implement digital assessment in their teaching practice.
