  • What is eAssessment?

    eAssessment can be defined as the use of information technology for any assessment-related activity.

    eAssessment covers more than just using technology during the evidence gathering stage. It is about the whole assessment process from planning, through evidence gathering, supporting the candidate, making the assessment decision, providing feedback, reporting and reporting and reviewing the assessment decision.

  • Applications of eAssessment

    There are five main types of evidence that can be gathered; evidence from text, visual evidence (images and video), audio evidence as well as evidence from social and collaborative activities and simulations.

    Multiple types of evidence can be gathered during an assessment process, and each has its own aspects to consider.
