Developing an Open Book Examination in a Sensor Technology Course

A. J. Rissanen

Abstract—According to the Bologna declaration, the Finnish National Defence University (NDU) provides undergraduateand graduate-level courses in academic and military disciplines. Military technology is one of the major learning aims at the NDU. Learning aims in master level technology courses are on scientific knowledge, understanding how technology is related to science, and life-long learning in technology-based working environments. Sensor technology is one of the key elements for surveillance and target acquisition principles. This study presents one development concept in assessment research and how it has been applied to learning sensors. Obligatory lectures and exercises are specific to NDU’s teaching environment. As such, they are effective methods for co-operative learning and teacher resource utilization. On the other hand, distance education features have been actively added to NDU’s curriculum structures. Exams can estimate students’ learning outcome and act as tools to diversify teaching processes. When aiming for better student motivation and learning results, enough space must be given for students’ contributions in examination protocols.
