Use of ICT in evaluation

 Context: Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education is the mode of education that use information and communications technology to support, enhance, and optimize the delivery of information. Worldwide research has shown that ICT can lead to an improved student learning and better teaching methods.

The use of ICT in the classroom teaching-learning is very important for it provides opportunities for teachers and students to operate, store, manipulate, and retrieve information, encourage independent and active learning, and self-responsibility for learning such as distance learning, motivate teachers and students.

Kahoot! is a tool for using technology to administer quizzes, discussions or surveys. It is a game based classroom response system played by the whole class in real time. Multiple-choice questions are projected on the screen. Students answer the questions with their smartphone, tablet or computer. Kahoots", are multiple-choice quizzes that allow user generation and can be accessed via a web browser.

            Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA): Computer-assisted assessment refers to the use of computers to assess students learning and performance. Computer-assisted assessment is a term that covers all forms of assessments, whether summative or formative, delivered with the help of computers. This covers both assessments delivered on computer, either online or offline, and those that are marked with the aid of computers, such as those using Optical Mark Reading (OMR).

Computer Assisted Assessment is typically formative, in that it helps students to discover whether they have learned what the educator intended and provide timely feedback on how best to teach a subject. Increasingly, it can be summative, with limited feedback typically being given at the end of a course and serving to grade and categorize the student's work. It can also be diagnostic, e.g. by testing for pre-knowledge.
