Reshaping the exam experience: Insights from BCU's hybrid assessment model

25 Jan 2024

Skills , Innovation , Higher Education
The Covid-19 pandemic made educational institutions across the world re-evaluate their assessment methodologies. Among them, Birmingham City University, whose hybrid digital assessment project won multiple awards including the Best Transformational Project Award and the Team and Practitioner Awards, providing a case study for modernising the testing experience for students. The team behind it, from BCU's Digital Assessment Centre Team, will discuss how and why they created their hybrid model. With an emphasis on student choice, the model allows candidates to take their exams either on campus or remotely, concurrently. By using the same digital assessment software across both settings, the university has successfully increased student engagement and satisfaction while enhancing the assessment process. This improved student experience provides a compelling case study for the benefits of modernising the assessment experience for educational institutions globally.
