In accordance with The Danish eGOVERNMENT strategy 2011-2015 digital assessment and exam should be implemented at all Danish universities by the end of 2013. University of Southern Denmark (SDU) decided to start the implementation in May 2010.
By the exam term of January 2013, the implementation proved successful, and close to completion. The majority of assessments at all of the 5 faculties and 5 campuses were digital, and students had handed in a total of 17.021 digital assessments.
On the basis of a conscious approach to active learning and activating teaching as well as E-learning, SDU has implemented digital assessments. There are many models in use at SDU, but since there is not just one model and one way to assess students a broad selection of IT-tools has been developed: multiple choice questionnaire (MCQ-test), e-Portfolios2, exam with internet access, exam with some internet access.
