This study investigated students’ perceptions of a bring-your-own (BYO) laptop based e-Examination system used in trials conducted at an Australian pre-university college in 2016 and 2017. The trials were conducted in two different subjects, in geography and globalisation. Data were gathered using pre-post surveys (n = 128) that comprised qualitative comments and Likert items. Students’ perceptions were gathered relating to the ease of use of the e-Examination system, technical reliability, suitability of the assessment task to computerisation and the logistical aspects of the examination process. Many of the typists were taking a computerised supervised test for the first time. A divergence of opinions between those that typed and those that hand-wrote regarding students’ future use intentions became more prominent following the examination event.
