UTS Maths/Stats Teaching Seminar: Leanne Rylands
Topic: Diagnostic and placement tests
It is not uncommon to use what are called diagnostic, placement, readiness or competency tests once students arrive at university to gauge their basic skills in mathematics or literacy. In the seminar I will discuss the Western Sydney University experience with several mathematics diagnostic and placement tests. I will show some examples of our tests and discuss various advantages and challenges associated with using such tests.
