Factors Affecting the Adoption of an E-Assessment System
McCann, Ann L.
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v35 n7 p799-818 Dec 2010
A case study was conducted in 2006-07 to explore how one US campus implemented a centralised e-assessment system. The study specifically measured the extent of adoption by faculty members, identified their reasons for adoption and evaluated the impact on teaching and learning. The purposes of the system, entitled researching learning (REAL, a pseudonym), were to measure student learning, meet accountability requirements and assist the university in becoming a learning organisation. An electronic database included programme assessment plans, results and sample instruments. The system also included a peer review process to improve plans by an assessment committee of faculty and administrators. (Contains 11 tables and 1 figure.)
