|Abstract||Computer assisted assessment (CAA) has become increasingly popular for formal assessments such as course exams, and a number of web-based and stand-alone systems have been developed for this purpose. A primary motivation for the use of CAA in exams is efficiency, such as in the presentation of materials, collation of responses, and rapid scoring and feedback to students. However, CAA can also play a valuable role during the learning process. Practice questions with feedback can be integrated within other learning materials and activities to assist with consolidation of understanding during learning. This use of CAA provides learners with an opportunity to test their emergent understanding, and in particular, to quickly identify failures in assumed understanding. CAA-based identification of problem areas during the learning process has the potential to enhance the metacognitive skill of self-assessment on the part of the learner, in addition to correcting specific errors. As a result, regular selftesting and feedback during learning via CAA may significantly enhance overall learning outcomes at both discipline specific and generic levels. This is particularly appropriate for web-based learning.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
