Have you ever overheard the conversations students have after writing your exam where they compare answers or are doing a self assessment of their errors? Have you wished that you could capitalize on this process or thought, “if only they could learn from their mistakes”? The 2 stage exam fulfills both of these purposes and research demonstrates that it supports learning (see http://www.cwsei.ubc.ca/resources/files/Two-stage_Exams.pdf)
Join Richard Wong from Langara’s Physics department as he takes us through some active learning experiences including how to incorporate the 2/3 stage exam, using Scratch Cards and a Gamification example. These Active Learning strategies can be used in classes in all disciplines!
