Title:
Evaluating the Use of Computer-Aided Assessment in Higher Education
Authors:
Biscomb, Kay; Devonport, Tracey J.; Lane, Andrew M.
Abstract:
The use of computer-aided assessment (CAA) can provide lecturing staff with easy cost-effective solutions to heavy marking workloads. This case study explores the implementation of CAA into a limited number (n=2) of level 1 modules. The aim was to explore students’ responses and lecturers’ perceptions of CAA. Students who had experienced the new assessment regime completed an evaluation questionnaire (n=68), and semi-structured interviews were conducted with the teaching staff (n=4) of the modules. Results indicate that students did not perceive CAA negatively within the assessment regime and staff clearly identified that this form of assessment had certain time saving benefits.
