Electronic Assessment Issues and Practices in Pakistan: A Case Study
Sangi, Nazir A.
Learning, Media and Technology, v33 n3 p191-206 Sep 2008
Electronic assessment (e-assessment) methods are at an early stage of development at various levels of education in South East Asian region. Until the primary resource requirements of the various educational institutions have been met in terms of providing an effective and efficient e-assessment system, a range of problems will arise for the individuals and organizations seeking to implement e-assessment. Key e-assessment issues are related to academic, economic, technological, ethical and social factors, and play an important role in determining the types of e-assessment needed at a given institution. In order to identify the status and scope of e-assessment activities in South East Asia, a survey was conducted in Pakistani educational institutions of higher learning highlighting current e-assessment practices and activities. The paper identifies the current practices, needs and preferences of institutions regarding e-assessment methods, discusses the implications with respect to issues identified and draws conclusions for future development. (Contains 2 figures and 5 tables.)
