Participants Needed for Generative AI and Assessment Study
Ben Lee Taylor and colleagues from the MacPherson Institute are looking for volunteers who are currently employed as instructors at a Canadian university or college and teaching at least one course during the 2023–24 academic year.
The study is looking at student assessments that have been designed or redesigned to address the widespread availability and use of generative artificial intelligence (AI) like ChatGPT, as well as assessments that instructors perceive as being unaffected by such technology. The researchers are collecting sample student assessments to identify key principles and best practices for assessment design with generative AI in mind.
The study involves an online survey and will take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time. You will be asked to provide some information related to your position as an instructor, to indicate whether you would be interested in a follow-up interview, and to upload a sample assessment.
You can access the survey by clicking on the following link: survey link. You will be presented with a consent statement before the survey begins.

This study has been reviewed by and received ethics clearance from the McMaster Research Ethics Board (Project #6636).Updates
