However, the administration of exam papers and completed scripts presents a number of vulnerabilities.

Using Peer Assessment to deliver impactful online learning experiences

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I understand". This ancient Chinese proverb remains the truest principle of the process of learning.
