Technology in Educational Evaluation – Opportunities and Challenges

In recent years, the use of online tools has increased in the field of evaluation. Although the main use of online tools in education has been for assessing students achievements, this paper will address the use of such tools for evaluating educational programs and projects. The principles will be presented by means of an example of online students feedback as part of a system of online surveys conducted about enrichment programs attended by these students. The system facilitates the utilization of a broad-spectrum feedback program. In addition, the feedback serves as a tool through which students can participate in the assessment process and make their voices heard in the decision making process. The advantages of computerization, as well as its difficulties, trace back to both technical aspects of the process and to ramifications of the process. This paper presents the complexities as well as the advantages of the continuous use of online systems for ongoing assessment. We present the ways in which we try to minimize complexity and the aspects about which there is still disagreement, but we also issue a clear call for increased use of this type of system in order to conduct quality assessment of large and otherwise silent populations.
