Education Technology Keeps Crucial Tests and Exams Going

Online tests and assessments dramatically cut down on marking time and can successfully guard against cheating, according to a new study by digital leader Fujitsu and one of the leading universities in Japan.

The results demonstrate how learning institutions can keep crucial tests and exams going when physical assessments are not possible or preferable. The lessons will impact how institutions can manage assessments during Covid-19 and beyond by moving tests online with Questionmark, the online assessment provider.

The study found that:

This study was set up by digital leader Fujitsu and one of the leading universities in Japan. They wanted to explore how learning institutions could keep crucial assessments going during Covid-19. Together they arranged for students to take a test from home through the Questionmark platform.

To guard against cheating and ensure that the results could be trusted, Questionmark Record and Review was used to supervise the assessment. Record and Review records the assessment taking place. It flags any signs of suspicious behavior for future review. This behavior could include unusual head movement or signs that a candidate is talking to someone else.

After the assessment, the candidates completed a survey to express how they felt about being recorded during the assessment.

Lars Pedersen, CEO of Questionmark, said: "Social distancing has forced learning providers to rethink how they assess student progress. As this study shows, exams and tests can be moved online while still guarding against cheating.

"The study also shows how online assessments can create efficiencies for the future. Now that institutions are confident in delivering online exams, there is no need to return to laborious, time-consuming and inefficient physical assessments."
