Benefits and obstacles: factors affecting the uptake of CAA in undergraduate courses
conference contributionposted on 15.04.2009, 13:41 by John Dermo
This short paper introduces and outlines a piece of research investigating the use of Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA) with undergraduate students, in order to identify the benefits of CAA as well the perceived obstacles to its adoption. It is hoped that ultimately this research will be able to inform the future use of CAA at undergraduate level, especially in blended learning environments. This research is currently in progress at the University of Bradford as part of the author’s PhD and feeding into the university’s Pathfinder project into e-assessment. The author hopes to be able to take advantage of the 11th International CAA conference to raise various issues related to this research project with his professional colleagues in order to receive feedback; this should enable decisions to be made on progress to date and inform how the research project may be developed in future.
