Abstract—This study presents our experiences in designing, implementing and deploying an on-line evaluation scheme to measure the English and information technology skills of new entrants to Sri Lankan universities at point of entry in 2011. Over 15,000 students from 25 districts of the country were subjected to the on-line evaluation. The test was conducted by using a learning management system, in 24 consecutive days in twenty six centres scattered across the country. This paper sums up the experiences we gathered in conducting the evaluation of a larger group of students spread across a wide geographical area and the lessons learned.

Index Terms—Assessment, blended learning, evaluation, skills.
