An Analysis of Online Examinations in College Courses


  • Barkley, Andrew P.


This research evaluates the use of online examinations in college courses from both instructor and student perspectives. Instructional software was developed at Kansas State University to administer online homework assignments and examinations. Survey data were collected from two classes to measure and evaluate the level of student preferences for online examinations. The statistical determinants of student preferences for online testing were identfied and quantified using logistic regression analysis. Strategies for the effective use of online examinations are summarized for potential adopters of online examinations.
