E-exams – Issues and Discussion Impetus • • • UQ is low on exam space Instructors are experimenting with e-exams – e.g. UQBS; Pharmacy Some universities are adopting online proctoring: Penn State, Harvard Distance Ed, Edx is using Pearson Should UQ go down this track? Advantages: Less printing or space; richer test experience (e.g. randomised question pools, heat-map questions etc.) Challenges: Which computer (Lab/Test Centre/BYOD); Which proctor (UQ/collaborative/external); Identification of students online; Cost (Now $10+bld, Online Proctor:$60/student, Test Centre: $400/exam) Thoughts?
