Abstract

© The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology.Considerable amount of resources have been being invested in order to use technology in education effectively. Also there are many research findings which have showed the benefits of technology integration in terms of learning and teaching. On the other hand technology can be integrated into measurement and evaluation processes, which are indispensable items of education. However there is little research on this topic. In this research, an exam management application was developed and used in order to manage and conduct a common exam, from preparation to evaluation, covering 552 students from 4 different undergraduate programs in one session. The aim of this research was to present the exam management application developed and identify the effects of this implementation on student satisfaction, lecturers’ views, time spent and workload. Results showed that this implementation succeeded in positive results in terms of the variables mentioned above. Results and the application also would serve as an example for universities about how to design, develop and integrate applications for measurement and evaluation in educational settings.
