Exams 'will soon be online'

New Zealand secondary school students will soon sit their exams online as lengthy paper and pen assessments face extinction.

Cambridge International Examinations, used by 63 New Zealand schools, expects electronic assessment in the "not too distant future".

That expectation is matched by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority, which wants to convert end-of-year NCEA assessments to a test-as-you-learn online format.

Tristian Stobie, director of education at Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), said the world was changing and education with it.
