INTRODUCTION


   Exam
       A set of questions, problems, or the like, used as a mean of
       evaluating the knowledge, abilities, skills, or performance of an
       individual or a group.
       Examinations constitute a fundamental aspect of the teaching
       and learning process, both in traditional courses as well as e-
       learning environments, as they provide the           necessary
       information to adapt and improve the activities of teachers
       and students.
       The frequent use of the evaluation systems can favor the
       development and the strengthening of the meta-cognitive
       abilities in the students, but may also behave excessive efforts
       and costs.

        –   printing on paper;
        –   distribution;
        –   execution;
        –   submission;
        –   evaluation;
        –   delivery of results;
        –   filing.

  • 7. INTRODUCTION Electronic Exam The electronic exam is a test conducted using a personal computer (PC) or an equivalent electronic device, in which the responses are electronically recorded and assessed. Electronic exams are also know as: – Computer Based Assessment (CBA); – Computer Based Testing (CBT); – e-exam; Electronic exams were initially developed more than forty years ago for professional certifications in the IT industry, and progressively evolved to satisfy the most complex evaluation needs. Currently more than one billion e-exams are performed every year all over the world. TCExam 12 - Software for managing exams, tests, surveys and quizzes 7
  • 8. INTRODUCTION CBA vs PPT (1) Several comparative studies between traditional Pen and Paper Testing (PPT) and electronic exams (CBA), confirmed by exhaustive literature review(1), found the following: – test results are independent of delivery mode; – CBA systems are largely preferred by examinees; – the level of computer skills does not significantly influence the result of the tests; – the use of CBA systems can positively influence the entire learning process. (1) Vrabel M, "Computerized versus paper-and-pencil testing methods for a nursing certification examination: a review of the literature", Comput Inform Nurs. 2004 Mar-Apr;22(2):94-8; quiz 99-100. Review. TCExam 12 - Software for managing exams, tests, surveys and quizzes 8
  • 9. INTRODUCTION CBA vs PPT (2) CBA systems can support the entire cycle of the evaluation process: preparation, distribution, execution, submission, evaluation, delivery of results, and filing. Among the main advantages of TCExam over traditional Pen- and-Paper Testing (PPT) there are: – increased delivery, administration and grading efficiency; – reduced costs for many elements of the testing life cycle; – improved test security due to electronic transmission and encryption; – consistency and reliability; – faster and more controlled test revision process with shorter response time; – faster decision-making as the result of immediate grading and reporting; – unbiased test administration and grading; – fewer response entry and recognition errors; – fewer comprehension errors caused by the testing process; – improved translation and localization with universal availability of content; – new advanced and flexible item types; – increased examinee acceptance and satisfaction; – evolutionary step toward future testing methodologies..
