eAssessment: New modes of assessment at the University of Basel
The Special Interst Group (SIG) eAssessment was launched and is coordinated by the Educational Technologies and is concerned with the introduction of an eAssessment infrastructure at the University of Basel. Together with interested departments and selected study programs they planned, executed and evaluated a number of test runs. Additionally, it fostered the exchange of experience between the different subject areas and the discourse about commonly used tools.
Due to the tremendous interest and the positive test results an operating concept for a versatile eAssessment infrastructure is currently being developed for the University of Basel. This will allow all educators to expand their variety of assessment possibilities, to save time with the marking of exams and to provide their students with a grounded feedback in a timely manner.
