Work in progress: management of online assessments as a replacement for exams
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractWhilst online Learning Management Systems (LMS) environments are rapidly becoming commonplace and a justified means for supporting learning and teaching, courses are often unable to be entirely taught online due to the necessity for traditional paper-based examinations, usually of significant percentage weighting of the total course grade. In this paper, the author describes the preliminary development of procedures and workflows for managing online assessments as a replacement for these traditional examination conditions, seeking to reduce examination stress and increase assessment validity. An in- development software suite, based on a LMS log-file pre-filter mechanism and behavior identification heuristic engine, is introduced to assist with identifying online compliance and collusion.
