Welcome, and thank you for scanning the QR Code that I created specifically for the eAssessment Scotland Conference, August 2011!
On this page you will find some links to me, my presentation, and my poster. I will be updating this page with links, notes, tweets, and pictures from the Conference when I return, but for now this is just to allow you to view my slides and poster in detail.
My presentation, as I blogged about when the abstract was approved, covers the subject of what we call Time-constrained Papers: “24-hour Papers: the Open-Book Alternative to Exams for Online Assessment“, the slides are reproduced below on SlideShare, please click the image to view:

Alongside this presentation I also am co-presenting a poster entitled “eAssessment: Who’s Involved”, also reproduced on SlideShare below:

I generated two QR Codeswhich I am displaying in two different locations at the Conference; one at the end of my presentation, and the other stuck to the back of my business card – both as research to see who scans the code to access this page. Whilst they both link to the shortened URL that is displayed beneath the code, by separating them out I could see which was scanned and from what device.
If you have any queries about the poster or the presentation please contact me via the comments field below or on Twitter.
Update: August 31st, 2011
Here are some links and various resources I collected from the conference, as well as some most excellent tweeting:
- Steve Wheeler keynote: Assessment in the Digital Age: Fair Measures?
- Becka Colley keynote: Please Sir, May I have some more exams?
From Steve’s keynote I posted the following photos to TwitPic:

The irony of education: the sign points the way to ‘learning’, but obviously doesn’t mean you ‘will’ learn
During the Conference the QR Codes (see above) were scanned, and here are a few stats and details on their success:
- QR Code in the presentation was scanned 6 times, 5 via iPhone and once manually types into Internet Explorer, all on the same day as the presentation (see, the shortened URL that is part of the code image does work – for this one person they may not have been able to get the code to scan from the photo they took during the presentation so typed the URL in when they returned home).
- QR Code on my business card was scanned twice, once on the Thursday and another on the following Tuesday. Unfortunately my attempt to stick a box of business cards to my poster did not work and they fell off to be quickly cleared up and binned by the cleaning staff at the event. The lesson learned here is to use sticky tape AND good quality pins to anchor the box to the poster wall!
During (before AND after) the Conference I tweeted a little of what was going on, but the surprising thing is I recevied two instances of my tweet being flagged as a ‘top tweet‘ on the day it was posted. The first of these was:
