This electronic journal article from Education, Technology and Society, discusses the advantages of online assessment using a Web CT system. Cheating and increasing class sizes in courses have forced instructors to reconsider their approach to assessment. This article examines Massey University Information Systems departments explorations into WebCT and how it compares to facilities (potentially) offered by developing an in-house assessment package. They examine the differences between the two examples of learning and teaching technology mainly from a teacher's perspective but include some illuminating examples of feedback from our students. They also provide some suggestions of factors that govern the successful use of online assessment courses.
