Learning From Our Ancestors: Rethinking the Final Exam in Higher Education
Lazaro Taitano Quinata (University of Guam, Guam) and Kirk Johnson (University of Guam, Guam)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-7736-3.ch010
This chapter reflects on the challenges of criterion-referenced final examinations in higher education within the context of Micronesian cultural realities and suggests alternative approaches that may contribute more constructively to student success. The first explores the transformative role that mentor relationships can have on both student engagement and purposeful and meaningful faculty-student interaction. The second appreciates the powerful contribution that connectivity plays as professors work to create a community of scholars within their university courses. And finally, the authors highlight the value of publishing as a pedagogic tool within a university course that elevates the process of research and writing making the work all the more important and meaningful to students. All three approaches are particularly meaningful due to the cultural relevance of each to Micronesian people.
