Easing the transition from paper to screen: an evaluatory framework for CAA migration
Computer assisted assessment is becoming more and more common through further and higher education. There is some debate about how easy it will be to migrate current assessment practice to a computer enhanced format and how items which are currently re-used for formative purposes may be adapted to be presented online. This paper proposes an evaluatory framework to assess and enhance the practicability of large-scale CAA migration for existing items and assessments. The framework can also be used as a tool for exposing compromises between delivery mechanism and validity—exposing the limits of validity of modified paper based assessments and highlighting the crucial areas for transformative assessments.
