Most of our education system is changed. New educational goals are emerging every day according to the need of the society and the advancement of science and technology. Global competitions and multinational companies are expecting higher order thinking skills. So we have to rethink what is important to learn and how this might be assessed authentically might be incorporated in curriculum planning. We encourage learners to use ICT but how can we restrict to paper based assessments to assess their knowledge.  e-Assessment can pave way for a radical approach to qualifications. This course is about e-Assessment, online tools for assessment and rubrics. 

This course is designed for Student Teachers (B.Ed.), Teacher Educators (M.Ed.), Research Scholars, Teachers, Educational Administrators, Online course coordinators and Program Developers.
