Abstract
Examination writing in Ghana seems to be a location based process. This is so because most examinations taken, be it school exams or other external examinations, are taken at specific selected locations. If exams are to be taken in a school like Ashesi University for instance, there is a time table drawn which includes a course, date, time and place of the exam. The processes that precede it include typing and photocopying of questions which can use up a lot of paper, time and space even for a relatively small school such as this. For larger societies or institutions where space is an issue, examination writing can get very uncomfortable since people are crammed into one examination room. This can even lead to cheating on a large scale with after effects such as examination cancellation, grade cancellation, and etcetera. A lot of this can be reduced by developing computer based online examination software systems for use by the institutions that need them.
