The aim of the eAssessment project is to identify electronic assessment options that facilitate improved pedagogical practices and address existing administrative issues.

A key component of this transformation process is the selection and deployment of a centrally-supported online assessment solution, available to all schools and faculties as required, that aligns with the majority of user requirements and integrates seamlessly into the existing information technology infrastructure of the University.

The eAssessment project is about assessment, including exams.

Following extensive market research/expression of interest processes and a formal Invitation to Offer, Inspera Assessment was selected as the preferred university-wide eAssessment system. Watch this video for further information on this stage of the project.

A demo test, developed through an eAssessment Student-Staff Partnership, introduces UQ students and staff to some of Inspera’s features and question types. The demo can be completed multiple times to provide familiarisation with the system.

In Semester 2 2021, the University has begun the staged rollout of Inspera Assessment using a school-based approach on an opt-in basis. There are seven schools participating in the school-based rollout, in addition to individual courses from an additional five schools who are testing the waters ahead of engaging with Inspera further in Semester 1 2022.

In total, 73 courses are using Inspera in Semester 2 2021 comprising of 125+ assessments, including 18 mid-semester exams and 42 end-of-semester exams. These courses include 7853 students across all faculties.

In preparation for the semester, course coordinators who are using Inspera attended two workshops to learn and discuss assessment redesign and transformation, school-based assessment processes, promoting academic integrity and student support.

This semester, the UQ Library Tech Trainers team has come on board to provide familiarisation workshops and Inspera Safe Exam Browser preparation sessions for students in addition to the Library AskUs support services.
