Effective assessment and academic integrity

January 20, 2023

On January 19, 2023, the Ala-Too International University held a seminar “Effective assessment and academic integrity” for the AIU teaching staff.

At the beginning of the seminar, the participants reviewed the criteria and distributional approach to the final assessment, the principles of effective assessment, methods and criteria of the final assessment, as well as the final assessment in terms of compliance of the results of the training course and assessment methods.

In the second part, the participants discussed measures to ensure academic integrity by students – an issue that has become particularly relevant since the launch of the chat bot “chat GPT” by OpenAI.

OpenAI is a neural network that can write code, answer complex questions, while the quality of answers is often much better than that of search engines, create scripts and write texts, poems, essays, create plans and calculations. The chatbot's answers can be adjusted with the help of leading questions.

The participants were actively involved in the learning process, working with syllabuses of their courses, which gives the greatest effect from the training. At the end of the seminar, the lecturers received certificates from the University of Central Asia.

We thank the facilitators – Maria Guzikova, Deputy Director of the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology, as well as Chynara Turatbek, pedagogical designer of the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology of the University of Central Asia for an exciting workshop!
