e-Exams are increasingly of interest to higher education providers. However e-Exams fit for the employability needs of 21st century graduates demands that we leverage the sophisticated affordances of ICT for authentic assessments but such e-exams must also be scalable and robust.

This session continues on from our e-Exams work previously explored at EdTechPosium in 2017, this time reporting on the third phase of work in the national 'Transforming Exams' project.

Live trials of a 'robust' online e-exam approach that uses Moodle were conducted at Monash University in semester 1 2018. Capabilities for a greater degree of authentic assessment via the use of a range of e-tools of the trade were combined with computer marked Moodle-based quizzes. However these are no ordinary Moodle quizzes! The live trials showed success with the custom developed e-Exam platform using a client-server Moodle working in a hybrid online-offline manner. The system withstood network outages, even total loss of connectivity during the exam session without loss of student's response data and without interruption to working time.

We will explore key system design features and outline students' feedback on their experience of the e-exam sessions.
