eAssessment Platform as a Veritable Tool for Administering Multiple Population Candidate Tests: NOUN Technological Option

e-Assessment as a technology tool in examination testing is a field of growing importance globally in this 21st Century and it is very new in Nigeria. This paper discusses the relevance and efficacies of e-Assessment in the position of distance education in Nigeria. It uses the perception of students about e-examination vis-a-vis required computer literacy level and the experiences of academic tutors to describe the efficacies of the eAssessment platform in relation to the testing of the university’,s multiple population learners as a fully fledged open and distance learning institution. Three research questions were formulated for the study while survey research design was adopted. Instrument used were both designed questionnaire and structured interview. Personally designed questionnaire with reliability co-efficient of 0.72 was used to obtain data regarding NOUN adopted e-assessment platform and previous computer experience from the student respondents while direct interview was used to gather responses from academic tutors.The gathered data were analyzed with the use of descriptive statistics. The results indicate that technology has high prospects and acceptance as means of assessing learning outcomes of learners though there are some problems militating against its successful utilization. The paper offers general suggestions towards improvement and future development of e-examination.Keywords: e-Assessment, Distance Education, Technology, National Open University ofNigeria.
