What is it?

The aim of the eAssessment Project is to identify electronic assessment options that facilitate improved pedagogical practices and address existing administrative issues. A key component of this transformation process is the selection and deployment of a centrally-supported online exam solution, available to all schools and faculties as required, that aligns with the majority of user requirements and integrates seamlessly into the existing Information Technology Infrastructure of the University.

What is happening?

In mid 2018, the project team will begin consulting with those staff from within UQ Schools and Organisational Units who are directly or indirectly involved in assessment processes.  This consultation aims to clearly define existing practices and preferences regarding assessment and exams from multiple perspectives, and across the entire process. From these discussions, a list of requirements will be developed and a market scan will be performed to identify and evaluate potential suppliers.

A key outcome of Stage 1 is the identification of a preferred solution, which we aim to achieve by the end of 2018.
