The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (FoHSS) today conducted an induction seminar for managing University Examinations (UE) ahead of Semester One exams slated for mid February 2019.
The Deputy Principal Academic, Dr. Julius Mbuna, said the seminar was meant to refresh the instructors on the importance of adhering to regulations governing smooth running of exams.
“We need to be assured of the conduct of our exams to avoid unprecedented issues of irregularities ahead of time,” the Academic chief was quoted saying.
The Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Dr. Emiliana Mwita, said the training was a wake-up call for the instructors to be more alert on exam matters.
“I would like you to take a hard and long look on how you prepare UE papers for this semester,” Dr. Mwita explained urging the instructors to compose exams based on content covered during continuous assessment.
Presentations during the seminar covered such topics as examination moderation and preparations for UE, effective teaching and assessment, quality assurance with regard to UE, adopting gender free UE practices, and digital publishing of the results.
Present at the seminar were the Deputy Principal (Academic), Dr. Julius Mbuna; Coordinator of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Hezron Onditi; Coordinator of Gender Unit, Dr. Ikupa Moses Mwandambo; Coordinator of Quality Assurance, Dr. Albert Mbukwa; and the host, the Dean of FoHSS Dr, Emiliana Mwita.
