The term e-assessment is used to describe a range of learning and assessment activities. For example, electronic marking, on-line assessment and on-screen testing are all often referred to as e-assessment.
From the point of view of regulation, we define e-assessment as “…the use of electronic systems for the development, operation and delivery of accredited qualification assessment or the collection of performance evidence, which contributes to the awarding of a unit or an accredited qualification”. This definition covers a broad range of activities including:
- learners typing their answers to on-screen questions;
- examiners marking scanned images of traditional exam papers;
- learners collecting evidence in an e-portfolio.
We want to make sure that awarding organisations develop methods of e-assessment which are secure and fair.
Where an assessment is available as a traditional test or an e-assessed test, the results must be reliable and consistent. There should be no difference in the standards of assessments whether they are completed using technology or pen and paper. You will also find some case studies of how awarding organisations are using e-assessment in the Regulatory Principles section.
We support efutures (a four country web resource designed to support innovation when using e-assessment in qualifications). You can find out more about this at the e-futures website.
You can access the e-futures toolkit at the e-futures website. This includes detailed explanations of common terms. (English only).
