Computer-based Examination in Singapore: The Journey So Far

The Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) has successfully conducted its first computer-based examination. In November 2013, about 300 Grade 11 candidates sat for the Mother Tongue Language B Syllabus Examination using a computer-based writing platform to compose a response to either an email or a blog stimulus in one of the Mother Tongue Languages, i.e. either in Chinese, Malay or Tamil Language.This paper shares SEAB',s journey in implementing computer-based examination, focusing on the following aspects: technical, operations, training, communication and support provided to examination personnel. Besides sharing the experiences and success factors, we will also share the challenges faced, as well as the considerations and mitigating measures taken, leading to all candidates successfully completing their computer-based examination.Keywords.
