Abstract
This exploratory study was set out to examine the perceptions about online assessment of graduating students of Pir Mehr Ali Shah Arid Agriculture University Rawalpindi.The intent was to find out students’ perceptions as a primary group. The data was collected from the three groups of graduating students of the Departments of Information Technology and Management Sciences. A semi-standardized instrument measuring the attitudes on a five point Likert scale was adopted. In addition to statistical tools, in-depth analysis of collaborative research in local and global context was done. Analysis of the data yielded that student community was highly favorable to use this technology along with associated e-learning tools. For institutionalizing the technology, policy-decision, faculty development and overseas linkage system would be necessary. Further studies in the area of need assessment and logistic and operational framework constituted the future areas of research.
