In mid-2009, the NOUN (National Open University of Nigeria) reached the decision to shift from conventional (that is, pen-and-paper) examination to electronic examination in the conduct of the end of semester examinations. One of the major factors prompting this decision is the inability of the university to release the results of past examinations promptly and error-free and a fact that gives the university a bad reputation. With the use of descriptive research design, the study investigated the perception of learners about electronic examination before and after their participation on e-examination. Three questions were raised which were turned to hypotheses. The findings revealed a difference in the perception of learners on e-examination prior and after their participations on e-examination with favor for e-examination. (Contains 3 tables.)
