Testing methods and teaching Islam, by PhD student Shaftolu Gulamadov of Tajikistan

testtakingBy PhD student, Shaftolu Gulamadov

I worked this year as RA for Shafique Virani, assisting with his courses at the UTM campus. Virani is a lively and inspirational teacher of Islamic history who uses various teaching styles to encourage students to think critically. The aim of the course I worked with was not just to communicate facts, but to help students achieve competency in locating, analyzing, synthesizing, evaluating and applying knowledge in real life, complex situations. I was responsible for creating weekly multiple-choice tests in such a way that they could both test and develop students’ higher order thinking skills.
