10 September 2014: Bring-your-own-laptop e-exam for a large class at NUS
This session was part of the joint eAssessment Scotland and Transforming Assessment online conference, 8 to 19 September 2014.
Presenters: Seow Teck Keong and Jeffery Tay, National University of Singapore
Hosted by Dr Mathew Hillier, University of Queensland, Australia starting 07:00AM UST/GMT. Duration 45 Minutes.
A large-scale e-exam was held at the National University of Singapore (NUS) for a class of about 670 students in November 2013. Students attempted the e-exam on their own laptops, which were installed with a lockdown browser. The questions were accessed via the university's internal LMS through a wireless internet connection. Some preliminary data from the pilot study that was conducted to investigate the perceptions of the students was presented during the session. The technical hurdles and challenges faced in administering the e-exam were also discussed.
