INNOVATIVE USE OF TECHNOLOGY IN GRADING

In the past, all grading meetings for the Singapore national examinations between the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) and Cambridge Assessment were held in Cambridge. These meetings were held to determine the grade thresholds of subjects for various examinations.

In 2004, SEAB and Cambridge Assessment embarked on an innovative approach to conduct grading meetings through the use of video-conferencing technology. Although this may seem to be a simple approach to the use of Information Technology (IT), the successful implementation of such meetings required much preparation and the redesign of grading procedures.

This paper shares the experience of the use of video-conferencing technology for grading meetings for the 2005 GCE N-Level examination. It also discusses the success factors, benefits, issues encountered and some feedback from related personnel regarding the use of video-conferencing technology for grading meetings.
