Lee, Kar-Tin, Pillay, Hitendra K., & Chandra, Vinesh (2008) Linking e-assessment to student's use of online learning content. In Cartelli, Antonio & Palma, Marco (Eds.) Encyclopedia of Information Communication Technology. Information Science Reference (IGI Global), Hershey, PA, pp. 532-541.


This article will examine the development and implementation of two information and communications technology (ICT) e-assessment tools--a diagnostic assessment system and an intelligent content assessment marking system--for the teaching of secondary science. An e-learning management system (ELMS, see Figure 1) was used with secon-year secondary students in science which provided both content and online assessment tool for teachers. By using this system, teachers had the opportunity to modify how they assessed their students by shifting the skills and knowledge being tested and also when and at which stage of the learning they are tested. The use of the ELMS had also assisted teachers to move away from the narrow condines of standardised tests with their discrete and decontextualized 'items' towards more complex, holistic, contextualesed, and authentic forms of assessment (e.g., Pellegrino, Chudowski, & Glaser, 2001).

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
