Students on Hybrid Testing

In-person and remote testing occur in very different testing environments. Test design is also very different for each modality. These differences contribute to unequal tests for in-person versus remote and are perceived as unfair comparisons by students.

In focus groups on hybrid teaching, students reported a strong preference that everyone take the test in the same modality, either all at home or all in-person (at testing centres if attending distanced from the university). – from the Learning Centre Student Focus groups, 2021,
