oa Meditari : Research Journal of the School of Accounting Sciences - Die toepaslikheid van rekenaargebaseerde assessering : 'n loodsstudie



In the light of the acceleration in the international and local information andknowledge revolution, the University of Stellenbosch (US) has introducedan e-learning strategy to gain maximum benefit from the developments ininformation technology. In support of this strategy, the US has implementedWebCT as an electronic course management system. Subsequent consultationshave revealed doubt among accounting lecturers and students about theeffectiveness of WebCT assessment of tests in Financial Accounting. Thepurpose of the study was therefore to investigate this perception on the basisof the available literature, our own experience, categories of student learningand feedback from students. The WebCT assessment function was also contrastedwith traditional assessment methods. It was concluded that althoughWebCT is not a quick fix, it could be implemented successfully in biggerclasses, provided that innovative lecturers are responsible for these classes.
