A new member joins our Publications Committee

In March 2017, the Publications Committee had the pleasure of welcoming on board Prof. Deborah Chetcuti to the team.

Prof. Deborah Chetcuti is an Associate Professor at the University of Malta.  She received her Ph.D. from the Nottingham Trent University and the title of her thesis was “The Physics Secondary Education Certificate Examination: A Maltese case study.”  She graduated with a B.Ed. (Hons.) in Science from the University of Malta and obtained a M.Ed. (Curriculum and Instruction) from McGill University, Canada.  She has worked at the University of Malta since 1994, first with the MATSEC Examinations Board and then with the Faculty of Education.  In the Faculty of Education, she has served as a Head of Department of Mathematics, Science and Technical Education and on a number of Faculty boards and committees. She was also involved in the introduction of a Masters in Teaching and Learning as the Initial Teacher Education programme in the Faculty of Education.  Her teaching areas are assessment and science education.  She is mostly interested in assessment in relation to the effects of examinations on students, the introduction of formative assessment in schools as well as the students’ views of examinations and assessment practices.  She has published chapters in books, in peer reviewed journals and in peer reviewed conference proceedings.  In 2016 she won the AEA Poster Award and subsequently published a book on the research presented in the poster on dyslexic teenagers’ views of examinations.
