Bring-your-own-laptop e-exam for a large class at NUS

By SEOW Teck Keong & Jeffery TAY

Abstract

A large-scale e-exam was held at the National University of Singapore (NUS) for a class of about 670 students in November 2013. Students attempted the e-exam on their own laptops, which were installed with a lockdown browser. The questions were accessed via the university's internal LMS through a wireless internet connection. Some preliminary data from the pilot study that was conducted to investigate the perceptions of the students will be presented during the session. The technical hurdles and challenges faced in administering the e-exam will also be discussed.
