The traditional mode of teaching and assessing mathematics in Indian schools has made this subject dull and boring for many students. This disinterest could be easily seen among them while assessments. Students who rely mostly on factual domain of cognitive memory, prefer to memorize the things rather than to understand, apply, analyze and evaluate the knowledge. This weakens the reasoning and analytical memory skills of students. With the help of formative and summative assessments a teacher can always evaluate a learner’s progress. This research study is comparing and drawing the line of inferences between the techniques of e-assessment of a learning management system (LMS) and the traditional approach of assessment. Here I have tried to figure out the impact of e-assessment on students, and how it is beneficial to them. With help of these e-learning methodologies how well a student can cope up with mathematics concepts and how these e-assessment tools become useful for teachers as well as students. This research paper has stressed upon the use of cloud technique of e-assessment. Assessing and storing data at a cloud platform is always preferable than on a standalone desktop application. This is because in presence of data and network connectivity, cloud servers can be assessed anytime at anyplace over any medium like smart phones, tablets, desktops or laptops. We just need to have our login credentials with a WiFi network or LAN connectivity so the learning could never get hamper.
