Duration: 4 hours
Description: This session looks at what e-assessment can do for an assessment organisation, based on an up-to-date view of the breadth of e-assessment approaches including on-screen testing and a wide variety of other technology-enabled assessments.
It covers the opportunities that are available to organisations, such as: more efficient management and presentation of material, more readily available data, the potential for richer items types and for closer integration between assessment and learning. However, this session will also look at how to overcome challenges of designing and implementing e-assessment in practice. These include: perceptions of ‘dumbed down’ assessment, selecting and working with platform providers, approaches to managing IT (including for teams who haven’t previously managed IT services) dealing with inclusion and accessibility, and introducing innovations to people in educational settings.
