Forthcoming TEASIG events and webinars

TEASIG Webinar series

IATEFL TEASIG has been offering webinars for 6 years and our series of presentations and discussion topics for teachers and testers continues in 2021.

Wednesday 27 October 2021 (0900 UK / 1000 CET)

“Structuring and Designing Assessment for Security”

COVID-19 triggered a rapid international shift toward online assessment, which has been accompanied by concerns about student cheating. If we aren’t physically with students, how can we be sure they are completing tasks in the circumstances we require – and how can we verify their identity?

This presentation explores what educators are doing to structure and design online assessment that intends to improve the detection or deterrence of cheating. It argues that addressing cheating will require an uneasy balance between positive ‘academic integrity’ and adversarial ‘assessment security’ approaches.
