Abstract

Electronic assessment systems (EASs) have proliferated teacher education programs in postsecondary education. Mostly, these systems facilitate candidate and program assessment through technology-mediated procedures, allowing for greater efficiency and accuracy in data collection and analysis. If implemented successfully, the work of individuals associated with teacher education programs has the potential to benefit from utilizing the system for course-based and programmatic assessment, both of which are criteria for accreditation by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). This qualitative study explored the perceptions of faculty and assessment coordinators at three institutions of higher education as they relate to EASs, and it contributes to research within the context of teacher education and the innovation diffusion theoretical framework.
