Testing with technology – What do you use?

This is from the ITEM listserve. If you have ideas and suggestions, you can leave them in the comments section below!

We are looking to move away from “bubble sheets” and scanners into something more tech based. The cost of scan sheets is incredible (~$4000/year for us) and we want a new way to do business. Are you using a technology based assessment system that you like? I am trying to identify a system or systems that are: – reasonably priced – could be paper based, but with a way to scan answers (doc cam?) – at the very least, something that can do multiple choice, but short answer, matching, etc. would be a plus. – If it is online, is there a way to prevent students from cheating (like a secure browser) Thanks for your thoughts, advice, or reflections on your experiences.
