The use of electronic assessment technology in institutions of higher learning is gaining rapid acceptance globally. This is not unconnected to the increasing global demands on higher education and the availability of several e-assessment platforms. Unfortunately, the slow rate of adoption of such technologies especially in the sub-Saharan Africa despites their benefits are of great concern to researcher. In addition to the focus on some of the existing technologies studied in this paper, a systematic review of 41 e-assessment related papers were analyzed. The findings revealed that while 80.5% of the papers focused on usage of one form of e-assessment technology or the other, only 2.4% of the papers reviewed investigated the fit of e-assessment tool (moodle and light wave). Therefore, there is an imbalance in research that explores users’ views on the fit of the several e-assessment tools being used by the various institutions and how these varying fit affect usage and performance using appropriate theoretical framework. The research does not only expand the body of knowledge in the e-learning domain, it contributes towards the provision of a foundation for the assessment of e-assessment technologies.
