Improving the Reliability and Fairness of E-Assessments

Exploring research evidence on the efficacy of home administered e-Assessments, identifying ways to improve their reliability and fairness.

About this Event

Under the Covid-19 restrictions, schools, universities, and technical and vocational organisations are promoting home-based e-assessments as a technological way around the social distancing impasse. However, the home is not a perfect testing environment. In this webinar we will explore research evidence about the efficacy of home administered e-assessments and identify some ways to improve their reliability and fairness.
