This paper presents the development of an e-assessment platform for application in Nigerian universities. Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria was used as a testing ground in 2008. In the age of digitalization that we live in, it has become imperative that a reliable means of assessing students using internetbased technologies be developed. This paper seeks to solve a part of that problem by designing and developing a web application where tests in multiple choice formats will be taken online and graded immediately. The web application relies solely on Microsoft developed technologies. It runs on the Microsoft.net framework, uses the ASP.NET web server, C# as the intermediate language, ADO.NET to interact with the relational database and Microsoft SQL server as the relational database. The work was simulated in the Visual Studio Express environment using Internet Explorer as the web browser. It was then tested on an intranet to ensure connectivity and could be relied upon for a w ide application to solve the problem of assessing the teeming population in tertiary institutions.
