Online testing and online marking technology

Online marking has been used internationally over the past few years to allow writing tasks to be marked by teachers from remote locations. Multiple choice questions and short answer questions have been marked by scanning the test booklets and using Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) and Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) technologies to assess the answers.The capability now exists to use Online Testing Software that allows students to use computers and participate in tests online. They can be provided with random questions from an item bank and have multiple choice and open short answer questions marked almost instantaneously.This online solution is more efficient and more effective than the current process. It eliminates the costs and management effort associated with printing, distribution, collection, scanning, and data capture of tests. It also allows open ended scripts to be marked far more easily using electronic and manual marking methods. Just as importantly the online solution saves time in collating data and provides results to schools and students in vastly improved timeframes.Simultaneous online testing for large numbers of students requires infrastructure and process changes to be made to the existing testing system prior to implementation of this solution.
