In this episode, we talk with Professor John Selker, who allows students in his Stochastic Hydrology course to cheat on their exams. But not really! In this class, it’s not cheating, it’s part of a new assessment strategy that’s gaining attention in higher education. Students spend half of their exam sessions writing out their own answers to questions with blue pens, and then they spend the other half of the exam with red pens, collaborating with neighbors to correct their own mistakes for partial credit.
