Temporal Aspects of Mathematical E-Assessment Systems

Enosha Hettiarachchi, Maria Antonia Huertas


e-Assessment has become a very integral part of study programmes which are mainly conducted in an online environment. Carrying out e-assessments for subjects that require a high level of skill in an online environment is a very demanding task. In this case, the temporal component of e-assessment plays a major role. Mathematical education in online higher education can be taken as one such example where e-assessment will be conducted as a combination of formative and summative assessment to access both skills and knowledge with rich feedback in a timely manner. In this paper we will be discussing some temporal aspects in e-assessments systems for mathematics, where the need for rich feedback goes beyond typical multiple-choice online questionnaires.
