Transforming Exams

This project aims to securely and sustainably leverage 'bring your own devices' (BYO laptops) for high stakes, face-to-face invigilated examinations, primarily for the on-campus context.

An Australian federal government Office for Learning and Teaching grant in partnership with the nine Australian Universities was received to develop a multifaceted e-exam solution that includes both technical and procedural elements. Particular attention has been paid to concerns such as pedagogical flexibility, academic workload, student preferences, ease of use, scalability, and sustainability.

The e-Exam platform is capable of a variety of examination modes. This includes 'paper equivalent' exams where students can choose between hand writing and typing, 'post-paper' exams that integrate more question types, multimedia, simulations and additional software tools as well as exams that incorporate computer marked questions; all made available for the large scale face-to-face supervised exam context. The main features are:

  • A 'whole computer', self contained, operating system and application suite
  • On-board LMS for computer marked question types
  • Restricted gateway to remote LMS
