Computer Based Examinations in University of Nigeria

ekereUniversity of Nigeria Nsukka has been conducting online exams for her students and it has been a worthwhile practice for both students and lecturers. Last year, we posted the success story of the GSP examinations and GSP 111 (Use of the Library and Study Skills) was one of such exams (Click here and here for the post links). Our blog post of  March 23, 2016 has a video of a student who we interviewed as she shared her experience. Okoh Chizoba testified that the GSP 111 examination was a huge success.
