The Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences, Prof. Upul Subasinghe organized a workshop on the 6th February 2024 on “Examination Paper Setting and Moderation” to train the young academics of the Faculty to effectively conduct the semester examinations. Prof. Sarath Banneheka of the Department of Statistics of the same Faculty was the Resource Person for this workshop, who spent three hours educating the young academics and increasing their skills on the theme.

Representing all Departments and Subject Programs of the Faculty of Applied Sciences, 40 academic members were selected for the workshop. Prof. Banneheka trained them to maintain the integrity and fairness of examination papers during the workshop, which was a paramount task.

The workshop also served as a platform to exchange insights, strategies, and best practices in ensuring the fairness and quality of assessments. By embracing collaborative approaches, leveraging technology, and upholding rigorous standards, our academics will continue to refine their practices and uphold the integrity of academic assessments in an ever-evolving educational landscape.
