An Inspired Learning Initiative
Technology-enhanced learning and teaching extends to the impact of technology on enhancing the whole assessment process including the design of assessment items, the delivery of assessments and the analyses and subsequent reporting of student performance. Digital assessments provide innovative solutions for assessing students' knowledge and skills including personal assessments. The capacity to capture finer analytical insight into student's performance allows for more detailed, informative feedback.
The digital assessment project's key outcomes include web-based authoring of assessment items with in-built assurance processes; different modes of delivery of assessments that improve the efficiency of implementation, automated analysis of selected response items and short-answer questions, and analytical scoring of extended response items; detailed reports on students performance for staff and students and information on item performance; integration with the existing learning management system and other IT systems, as required, for verifying student identity, secure delivery, and recording course results.
