Developments in on-screen assessment design in examinations

A paper which will draw on examples from projects undertaken for a range of UK agencies, including the regulators from each of the 4 nations (QCA, ACCAC, SQA and CCEA), and Awarding Bodies such as Edexcel and the British Computer Society.

This work includes the use of:

  1. Rrich media (exploring how video, audio, animation and imaging affect assessment performance, including for candidates with disabilities),
  2. Iinteractivity and adaptivity (exploring how requiring students to make interactive responses affects achievement and engagement),
  3. Advanced computer-marking techniques (work to mark candidates’ prose, mathematical workings, and process as well as output),
  4. Item banking complex items to allow "when ready" assessment, and comparability issues with more traditional assessments.

The paper also discusses how "when-ready" e-assessment is blurring the traditionally clear boundary between summative and formative assessment, and the opportunities open to qualification providers to reshape their assessment offerings to act as learning resources.
