ENGAGING STUDENTS IN THE DESIGN OF EXAM ASSESSMENT METHODS
IMPLICATIONS FOR LEARNING AND PROFESSIONAL APPLICATION
This report discusses and evaluates the engagement of students in the design and implementation of new exam assessment methods at a course on “Field Methods” for military linguists at the Royal Danish Defence College. Arguing that assessment methods can be employed to improve student learning, the report focuses on the guiding principles of productive assessment and on the practical implementation of such principles. As this report shows, the collaboration with students on the revision of and introduction of new assessment methods may be a time consuming, at times bewildering process, yet also a rewarding process that enhance student motivation, and thus student learning.
Key words: Practice-oriented learning, student motivation, assessment methods, exam forms.
