E-assessment
– An insight

Integrating E-assessment into your teaching practice is an innovative step. Digital assessment and digital feedback will contribute to the ever-increasing quality and effectiveness of your teaching.

Digital assessment can be a boon to students, teachers, and the organisation as a whole. It is an important contributor to the continued improvement and development of Utrecht University’s organisation and education. Digital assessment is also familiar to today’s highly tech-literate students. Both summative assessments and formative ones, which guide students’ efforts, can be digitised and performed online. The E-assessment subproject aims to select and implement one or more digital assessment tools and to provide a means to perform large-scale digital testing. The goal is to make available a catalogue of digital assessment tools to help the faculties meet their educational and organisational targets concerning assessment.

Educational benefits:
• higher quality and more diverse assessments
• secured tests, results, test products and item banks
• reduced dependence on specific times and places for testing

Organisational benefits:
• a more efficient and secure assessment process
• teacher development and reduced workload
• improved service to students

Through a European Procurement process, Paragin’s Remindo digital assessment software emerged as the optimal choice. A four-year licencing contract for the software was signed in March of 2015. Experience for yourself what Remindo digital assessments can offer by taking a sample test here.

In late February 2015, a facility for performing large-scale digital assessments (up to 480 students at a time) was created in three rooms of the Educatorium. Digital assessments can be performed there safely and reliably using Chromebooks and a secure WiFi network.
Pilot programmes were conducted at a number of different faculties (Life Sciences; Veterinary Medicine; Social and Behavioural Sciences; Geosciences; Law, Economics and Governance; University Medical Center) between March and July 2015. All told, 24 large-scale tests and inspections were successfully completed on Chromebooks at the digital assessment facility.
In June, UU hosted and participated in the national SURF seminar about large-scale digital assessment where the Chromebooks concept was presented and explained.
