Seminar Overview:

The “Online Assessment System for Individual Scores” (OASIS) is a new process that aims to enhance the effectiveness of a team project, thereby broadening students' learning experiences and achieving a fair assessment of team members’ individual contributions to the project’s completion and quality.

In this seminar, teachers will learn a fair, relatively easy to implement, low cost and universal applicable online assessment system which can help them to:

  • improve the learning outcome of team projects;
  • prevent free-riding problem in team projects;
  • achieve fair individual scoring for team projects;
  • generate empirics that are useful materials for future teaching; and
  • engage students to learn actively, likely better and more than they are currently used to in a team project setting.
