UI, 10 OTHERS ADOPT E-TESTING FOR EXAMS
« on: April 26, 2009, 09:50:50 AM »
ELEVEN tertiary institutions, including the University of Ibadan, Ibadan, have adopted the computer-based electronic testing methods for their examinations.

The Vice-Chancellor, UI, Prof. Olufemi Bamiro, while signing the Memorandum of Understanding with the Electronic Testing Company Ltd. in Ibadan, said that the institution adopted the e-testing scheme as a way of reducing the workload on lecturers.

He said it was also for the deployment of the gains of information communication technology to quicken examination processes in the institution.

According to him, the eTC testing method will be more appropriate in the Distance Learning unit of the institution, which he said, had a large number of students and high logistics needs.

He added that with the adoption of the e-TC option, the university would be able to make tests and examinations available? on demand.? ?It will also make room for convenience for the candidates as test questions could also be created in ?banks? and delivered at random, while complex logistics problems associated with the preparation and delivery of typical examinations will be eliminated,? he said.

He said that the e-TC would also serve as a means of raising funds for the university as participating institutions would also share in the revenue accruing from the programme.

Earlier, the managing director of the Lagos-based company, Mr. Tunde Oladipo, had stated that the vision of his organisation was to relieve schools, examination bodies, corporate organisations and other institutions of the burden of manual conduct of tests and examinations, which involve lots of work and logistics and more expensive on the long run.

Other universities that have adopted the scheme include the University of Ilorin, Ilorin; Federal University of Technology, Minna; University of Maiduguri, Maiduguri; and the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi; and other six organisations and firms.
