what are the advantages and disadvantages of using portals in education
The primary advantage is that an online exam portal can be setup to automatically grade responses and the primary disadvantage is that the best answer may not be the right answer. [
My local college has such a portal and its great when test results are immediately posted for test-taker viewing. I took a final last week and got a multiple choice question incorrect on comparing 'current' white
men's and white women's earnings as a percentage by choosing 80% as being closest to numbers in a Institute for Women's Policy 2006 report of 77%. It was marked incorrect as they were looking for the 70% value in a 2004 report published in a book printed in 2009. ]
