14th Annual eAssessment Question Conference

Posted By: eCom Scotland

In many vocations standard, question and answer based assessments are simply not an adequate means of testing the competency of the workforce. This can be no clearer than in roles where a mistake could cause a fatality (e.g. electricians, fire fighters, police officers etc.)

This is where observational assessment comes in. By employing this examination technique assessors can be confident that the individual is fully competent in the role and won’t be a risk to themselves or others.

Linda Steedman (Chief Executive Officer for eCom) takes this one step further in her speech for the 14th Annual eAssessment Question Conference in London where she discussed the automation of marking in overt assessments, with particular reference to e-observations within the area of apprenticeships.
