Design Considerations for Exam Wrappers

Marsha C. Lovett

This Tomorrow's Professor posting looks at the use of exam wrappers as a way to help students improve their performance on exams. Exam wrappers are short activities that direct students to review their performance (and the instructor's feedback) on an exam with an eye toward adapting their future learning. It is from Chapter 2 - Make Exams Worth More Than the Grade: Using Exam Wrappers to Promote Metacognition, by Marsha C. Lovett, in the book, Using Reflection and Metacognition to Improve Student Learning Across the Disciplines, Across the Academy, edited by Matthew Kaplan, Naomi Silver, Danielle LaVaque-Manty, and Deborah Meizlish.
