An Adaptive Trust-based e-assesment System for Learning (TeSLA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

Although online education is a paramount pillar of formal, non-formal and informal learning, institutions may still be reluctant to wager for a fully online educational model. As such, there is still a reliance on face-to-face assessment, since online alternatives do not have the deserved expected social recognition and reliability. Thus, the creation of an e-assessment system that will be able to ...
