Chemistry Practical Coordinator, Suzanne Grove presented at CIECTs 11th Annual eLearning colloquium in 2018. The presentation focused on the practical tests that 1st year Chemistry students are expected to complete on a weekly basis, in preparation for practical tutorials. Hence, students are not able to enter the practical tutorial, if they had not completed the online test, hosted on the iKamva Platform.
Weekly preparatory tests are open for a specific time period (one week only). A student is able to attempt a test, multiple times and the highest mark is recorded. It should also be noted that the tests/quizzes account for 15% of the Continuous Assessment Mark (CAM). This year (2019) Suzanne is translating the online tests (both question and answers options) from English to isiXhosa and Afrikaans. The students receive their results immediately upon submission.
