Use Computer for Examination

It's the end of the month again. Time flies. Day after day. Week after week. Month after month. I think I am so inefficient. I didn't get much work done during the past several days. I keep on telling myself that I'll start again on the next day. And here I am again…I'll start again tomorrow. Should get myself a time table to be a little more discipline now.

Anyway, the point of this entry is not about my inefficient. I would like to talk about the article I've read today. It's the journal published in British Journal of Visual Impairment. This article talked about the computer application created to enable visual impaired students in the university to be able to take written examination rather than the oral exams they used to. The article argues how written examination could provide more objectivity, validity and reliability than those taken orally. Therefore, the application tool is used. This tool enables students with visual impairment to take examination on their computer with screenreader. All the questions will be written electronically by their teachers and they can answer them electronically. At the end of the examination the students can choose a send button to send an email of their examination paper to their tutors. This sounds very practical and easy. Wonder why this kind of thing does not have in Thailand. And if there is such a tool, will Thai screenreader be able to read Thai paper properly? Research and development is still necessary. Moreover, training students with visual impairment is even more important since from my interview with university students with visual impairment I found out that very few of them can use computer and Internet effectively.
