E-Assessment: commissioning, implementing and delivering

Daniel haven and amanda Jefferies represented the OP4RE project today at the 15th annual E-Assessment conference and exhibition. The focus of this conference was on hwo computer based assessment have grown significantly since the early days of automatic test publishing and certification. We have seen developments like paperless examination projects, e-proctoring, open badges, social media, BYOD, the growth of e-portfolios, the proliferation of question types, the rise of government initiatives and policies following FELTAG, Sainsbury and Curriculum changes, the expectations of digital natives and rapid changes in technology.

The path has been slow and inexorable but hardly smooth, the need to manage risk and costs as important as drive for innovation and the expectations of the users.

The focus for the 15th annual international e-Assessment Question was on the practical issues of commissioning, implementing and delivering e-Assessment solutions.
