SACE Electronic Exam Adelaide High

Capturing the historic moment of Australia’s first electronic exam at Adelaide High School, marking the beginning of a modernisation process in assessment methods across 115 schools in South Australia and the Northern Territory. Students express confidence in using technology for exams, citing the familiarity of typing and ease of making real-time changes. The shift to electronic assessments aims to align education with the evolving needs of the world, emphasising not just knowledge but also the practical application of that knowledge. The focus on general capabilities showcased through electronic assessments reflects what employers and universities seek. English literary studies paved the way for electronic exams, with plans to expand to other subjects, signalling a broader shift towards digital assessment methods in education.
