There is an ongoing project on the University of Porto (U.PORTO) that aims the
association of two didactical tools of information and communication technologies: elearning
and computer based assessment (CBA).
In order to make the convergence of e-learning with CBA there are several issues that
have to be addressed: pedagogical problems in the assessment methods, technical
problems in the implementation process and organizational problems that are particularly
complex in an university campus like U.PORTO: large and spread. The e-Assessment
topic is of general interest for those who work in e-learning, specially now in the era of
Web 2.0, where many questions arise due to so many different approaches of
methodology, strategies and evaluation. U.PORTO is no exception. The need of being
more accurate in the assessment process when using the web, even if the teachers use a
blended-learning approach, is real and work is being developed in order to try to respond
to this need.
Although the e-learning Unit (GATIUP) works towards different assessment methods, this
particular paper focus on the implementation of online tests on campus using the
University LMS – Moodle.
