Introduction:Many educators ‘teach to the test’, with varying degrees of institutional support (Mathews, 2006). Therefore for information and communication technology (ICT) to produce educational transformation (Downes, Fluck, Gibbons, Leonard, Matthews, Oliver, Vickers & Williams, 2001, p.10; Finger, Russell, Jamieson-Proctor & Russell, 2007, p.73), educators must consider which assessment techniques permit students to utilise the affordances of new technology.
Without a suitable, computer based way of conducting examinations (as an example of rigorous or standardised assessment), curriculum transformation may be unlikely to occur because assessment is a major determinant in teaching (Ainley & Searle, 2007, p.7). This report is preliminary, describing the development of an eExamination method and its use in pre-service teacher education.
Using open source software developments, a set of tools has been created and trialled for candidates to use their own personal computer under examination conditions. These tools are available for others to investigate and download. Click here to read more…
