Use spreadsheets for assessment? Read on!

Associated Professor Graham Moore from the Department of Infrastructure Engineering has been granted a Learning and Teaching Initiative (LTI) grant to develop the University’s knowledge around the use of spreadsheets for assessment. In particular, Graham wants to ascertain how spreadsheets can be more easily graded to take account of group work input and academic integrity issues.

To find out more University of Melbourne teaching staff who use spreadsheets in assessment are being asked to complete a survey.  This surveys aim is to discover the context of spreadsheet use and concerns about collusion or plagiarism. Staff are offered an option to collaborate further in the project.

The survey focuses on a University subject.  If staff use spreadsheets in more than one subject, they can either select the more important subject, or can complete the form multiple times.  It will take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.

The survey can be found here.
