e-Assessments in Tertiary Education
Venue: CQ Functions
|Event Date/Time: Aug 22, 2012|
The Australian governmentâ€™s digital education revolution aims to invest funds to support the effective integration of information and communication technology (ICT) in Australian schools. Tertiary institutions therefore need to prepare for an influx of laptop savvy learners with a different set of expectations from traditional paper-based testing.
However, discussions around the strategic and practical application of e-Assessments are still in its formative stages and require an agreement on a uniform framework to ensure quality and reliability.
One of the major obstacles the technological education revolution is currently facing, lies in the disconnect between its mode of delivery and mode of assessment. The assessment policies currently in place in tertiary institutions, which outline the governance of assessments, will soon require a review as institutions undergo this paradigm shift into e-Assessments.
This national conference will address all aspects of e-Assessments from the classroom to the workplace, from strategy to implementation, and it will encourage engagement and best practice for e-Assessments for all practitioners, trainers and academia.
