ECON1210 (Introductory Microeconomics) has large enrolments (more than 1000 students in semester 1 in 8 subclasses, and more than 500 in semester 2 in 4 subclasses). We coordinate to ensure that all subclasses have common assessments. We believe that we have provided the best learning resources to students. Our grading is the most transparent. And, due to the online exam arrangement during the pandemic, we have developed personalized exam papers. Such personalized exam paper development allows us to transform our final exam into open-book computer-based in-hall exam. In the talk, I will share how we make all these to happen.
