Web-based Learning has been accelerated by advances in Internet technologies as well as by the introduction of learning standards. This paper describes the development of an online assessment system that conforms to the IMS Question and Test Specifications by the IMS Global Learning Consortium, Inc. The system facilitates the creation of assessments and more significantly, it allows these assessments to be ported to other conformant Learning Management Systems. The system comprises of an authoring module, a viewer program to display the questions online and an assessment component via which users may execute the tests. The Sharable Content Object Reference Model Run-Time Environment version 1.2.1 by the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative is used as the reference Learning Management System for integration with the assessment system.
