Abstract

The field of electronic learning (e-learning) has improved tremendously in the past decade with the invention of all kinds of e-leaning systems. The undertaken research was done to improve web assessment systems which are limited to summative assessment and does not have a feedback section to the student hence does not promote learning. A web assessment system which uses ontologies was proposed to promote formative assessment with a feedback loop to the students so that the structured type of questions can be implemented in web assessment. An experimental research design was employed looking at the difference in marking between the human teacher and a web assessment system. Data was gathered from a Shona Test which was written by 60 primary school students from two schools in Bindura Zimbabwe. A T test analyses using SPSS seem to suggest that there is no difference in marking between the human examiner and the web assessment system which uses ontologies. Furthermore it also emerged that the web assessment system is far much more accurate as compared to the human examiner.
