Educational Enhancement Unit
In 2022, UWA is continuing to support Unit Coordinators across the university in developing alternative assessments by introducing Cadmus, an assessment tool which integrates with LMS. Units that require invigilated exams due to accreditation purposes will proceed as normal. UWA has purchased a campus-wide licence.
Cadmus is an online platform, which integrates with Blackboard and Turnitin, where educators can design written assessments and provide opportunities for writing practice for their students. It can be used for formative or summative assessment and as a writing tool. As an examination alternative, Cadmus aligns with UWA’s shift from invigilated exams. With its modern and flexible interface, it supports authentic pedagogy for all modes of teaching delivery. As a writing tool, it can support students whose first language is not English, students returning to university, and those struggling with academic writing.
