First Year Student Suggests Exams Might Not Be The Best Way To Assess Ability

A first year English Literature student today posed the question to his course mates as to whether sit-down examinations were really the best way to assess student’s ability.

During a two minute monologue in the library foyer, Sym Ball, 18, explained to a small group of friends that making students complete tasks they are not perfectly prepared for, under a time limit, and then giving them feedback on their exertions was “not at all like real-life”, and “grossly unfair”.

“I think we should have more peer assessment and group work projects”, continued Ball. “Perhaps some short class tests, but preferably multiple choice, and with adequate prior warning, so not to make them too different to graduate employment.

The group to which the monologue was delivered could be seen nodding their heads in agreement. One then preceded to tell their peers about the summer internship they had planned in Lloyd’s Risk Management department.
