Faculty of Business and Public Management
School of Marketing, Tourism and Leisure
This paper examines the use of exams as a means to increase student centred learning in a tertiary third year marketing class. It presents an example of how the final examination can be designed by students and the process incorporated into the course curriculum to achieve learning outcomes utilising deep learning processes. It challenges the notion that exams are purely for surface learners and suggests strategies through which the end of semester examination can increase student centred learning, develop stronger understanding of core unit concepts and deliver a more rewarding educational experience for the student.
