An online assessment platform supports your organisation’s entire examination cycle on-screen. Online or digital assessment also goes by the names electronic assessment, e-assessment, or computer-based assessment.
Both online assessment and online learning play important roles in growing areas such as adaptive learning, learning analytics and personalised education. With online assessment, learners can apply their knowledge and skills to real-world situations which gives them a more authentic assessment experience.
Digital assessment is not just about getting rid of the pen, paper, and handwriting. Digital assessment is the bridge between school, work, and active citizenship. It secures alignment between the tools used in everyday teaching and evaluations, and those test-takers will be using in their professional life.
An important aspect of online assessment is the built-in continuous improvement of the assessment practice. When we conduct assessments, we obtain statistical and behavioural data. When we use this information in a smart way, we can become better at designing questions and tests, speed up our learners' path to mastery, and improve the validity of our results.
