Abstract

The methods at which assessment is carried out are diverse and differ from state to state around the world. Automation of the exam assessment process has been adopted by many developed countries over the past decade. They have managed to automate some courses and not the whole examination process. The few courses that were automated seemed to be successful hence this is what prompted the researcher to carry out this research. The developing countries seemed to have adopted the idea but mainly for multiple choice questions which do not require too much human effort. The proposed method will not skip the examination rules, regulations and procedures that have to be followed. The system will be used after all the normal procedures have been followed. The normal procedure is that lecturers set exams and a board meeting where the set exams are discussed is carried out. It is during this board meeting where the chairperson of the department will be taking note of the mistakes. The proposed system will be used after the board meeting. This is when the lecturer will enter their questions into the exam database. In the system the lecturers can only edit topics and questions. The chairperson’s role is to verify the questions set by the lecturer and also to create and delete the users. Finally the exams officer can only generate an exam from the set questions and print it.
