Adoption of e-assessment in Strathmore University Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • ICT can contribute to the development and efficiency of education management and administration. Efforts to introduce ICT in teaching, learning and assessment aim to help meet a wide variety of goals in the education sector. This paper is based on a research project that was carried out in Strathmore University by @iLabAfrica, funded by the Kenya Education Network (KENET). The research was driven by challenges facing traditional assessment of large classes. It aimed at identifying e-assessment tools, evaluating if differences existed between performances of students examined with traditional assessment and those examined with e-assessment and investigating the feasibility of implementing e-assessment to complement eLeaming in the University. Findings revealed that a variety of tools existed and that e-assessment was better than traditional assessment in terms of students' performance, management of large classes, flexibility and cost effectiveness.
