The e-Assessment Association has announced the shortlisted finalists for the sixth international e-Assessment Awards.
The e-Assessment Awards programme holds a unique and truly global position, as it encompasses all sectors of education from schools, through further and higher education to workplace training and professional exams.
The past two years have seen probably the greatest advance not only in the uptake of organisations switching to use some form of online assessments, but also a recognition that both learning and assessment can be enhanced by embracing digital technology.
Matt Wingfield, Chief Executive of the e-Assessment Association said, “Digital Assessment is now at the forefront of many discussions and is transforming the way assessment is approached across the world. This year entries have once again come in from the continents of Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania, and North America; giving us a real opportunity to learn from those who are innovating, researching, and driving change in the industry.”
Professor Bob Harrison, Chair of the Judges said, “This is my second year as Chair of the judging panel and yet again it has been an enormous privilege and a tremendous source of inspiration to see how collaboration between educators, assessment bodies, technologists and commercial interests have worked together, despite the challenges of the pandemic. These awards demonstrate the capacity and capability within the world of e-assessment to use technology to improve the assessment process and make it more accessible, reliable, valid, relevant, and cost effective.”
