Research Overview


Research sections of this website Author: Lee Ballantyne

City of Glasgow College (CoGC), as part of the Colleges’ e-Assessment Group (CEAG), including the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), the College Development Network (CDN), Education Scotland, the Student Participation in Quality Scotland (sparqs), and Jisc RSC, proposes to evaluate and address the barriers to adoption of e-assessment, and, incorporating the needs of key stakeholders, create a process, or series of processes, to enable improved uptake of existing e-assessment options as well as drive future development.

The primary output will be a replicable, scalable, sustainable, framework for e-assessment implementation in education. This process will enable institutions to identify and overcome barriers now and in the future. As part of this process, a toolkit of resources will be developed, which will better enable the use of technology in the assessment process. This will enhance the learning and assessment experience, improve learner engagement, and promote greater efficiency through flexible and authentic assessment.
