Electronic Test Company Limited (eTC) is a company in Lagos, Nigeria set up to provide computer based testing of candidates for all types of tests. This testing method is referred to as E-examination. It is simply the process by which examinations are delivered, taken and scored electronically. It entails questions being deployed onto computer workstations and candidates answering the questions on to the computer. The process of writing exams is thus completely paperless.
E-examination is sometimes referred to as CBT (Computer-based testing) or CBA (Computer-Based Assessment). This testing method is now being extensively used in many parts of the world today. The use of e-exam simplifies the entire testing cycle, including generation, execution, evaluation, presentation and archiving. This simplification saves time and money while improving reliability.
