A crowd-sourcing platform was developed for assessments based on international standards and to conduct an empirical study to determine whether or not teachers in Pakistan are able to crowd-source quality questions based on learning outcomes stated in the national curriculum to specify recommendations for the subsequent full-scale deployment of such a system based on insights gained from the model. The work adapted the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model of Information Technology (IT) adoption to educational crowd-sourcing applications. Successful adoption of this online assessment system has the potential of impacting the entire basic education system, from primary to secondary and beyond, in terms of quality enhancement.
