DETMex: Expanding and distributing EASiHE tools: a collaboration between Southampton and México


Expanding and distributing EASiHE tools is a collaborative effort between ECS and the Universidad Autónoma de Tamaulipas (UAT).

The project aims to:

  1. Disseminate EASiHE in HEIs outside the UK
  2. Translate some of the EASiHE tools to expand its uptake by universities in Spanish-speaking countries
  3. Evaluate if and how EASiHE tools may be used to evaluate the development of high-level skills of the Bloom’s taxonomy

Researchers and lecturers from UAT will develop a question bank for the module of Molecular Biology and use the items to produce exams to assess students across various academic programmes. This task will help the researchers to 1. implement e-assessment practices in the university and 2. facilitate the creation of standard exams for a compulsory module associated with different undergraduate programmes (e.g. nursing and biology).
