Online assessments can now be be administered on a multitude of electronic devices.
Ongoing advances in technology continue to influence the testing industry. Online assessment continues to evolve. Once limited to computers connected to a network, online assessments can now be administered on a multitude of electronic communication devices, including computers, and handheld devices such as smartphones or clickers. Assessment in an online environment introduces a variety of measurement issues including innovative technology-enhanced item types, test security for high stakes assessment, and the comparability between assessments delivered in both online and traditional paper-and-pencil formats. We conduct research to support improved measurement delivered in an online environment.
