Computer Based Testing

Formative and summative assessment is supported through Computer Based Testing, and in-class response systems.

Computer Based Testing

Computer Based Testing is the ability to run formative and summative assessment through an online testing tool. This will normally take the form of a series of questions that can include such options as multiple choice, hot-spot, written answers and answer ordering questions.

Most computer based testing at CCCU takes place using Blackboard’s own testing tools. To ensure fairness when such tests are undertaken, we use the Respondus Lockdown Browser to limit students’ ability to undertake other tasks during the time of the assessment.

How can I use Computer Based Testing with my students?

For more information about setting up and running a Computer Based Test, please contact your Digital Academic Developer (DAD), formerly Faculty Learning Technologists (FLT).

You must first familiarise yourself with the quality assurance requirements within the ‘Assessment, Online’ document on the Quality and Standards Office web site.
