eExaminations development and acceptance

Abstract : Over three years students at the University of Tasmania have participated in eExaminations where they have responded to examination questions using computers. Over these three years they have made the transition from using institutional computers in laboratories to using personally owned laptops in a traditional examination hall. This innovation and transition have been paralleled and enabled by the development of a modified live operating system which preserves the fairness of the assessment process.
