Abstract

The quest for paradigm shift in our educational assessment has become obvious. This is because the huge technological developments in the world today have become new tools that will enable us to use data generated from the new assessment procedures and indeed the new educational system of the future to continuously improve the society. For the future of our education and assessment we need to throw away all theories and processes which through research have been found to be flawed or wrong. There are assessment procedures that need to be changed for more effective and better academic achievement of our students. Digitalization should be embraced in our educational assessment to change as modern societies are changing. This paper takes a look at the concept of paradigm shift, comparing the current and new paradigms, the vision of the new paradigm in educational assessment, technological support and paradigm shift and the need for paradigm shift in assessment.

Keywords:  Paradigm, Shift, Education, Assessment, Technology.
