7 March 2012: Transforming Assessment with Adaptive Questions Online

Presenter: Dr Richard (Dick) Bacon (University of Surrey, UK)

Hosted by Professor Geoffrey Crisp, RMIT University, Australia starting 07:00AM UST/GMT.

Conventional e-problems in physics are being adapted to take advantage of features offered by a new assessment system (SToMP II). These include alternative mal-rule based wrong answers to support targeted feedback and adaptive questions to offer multiple tries. These two features are being used together to transform the assessment experience for many students from one of failure to one of learning and eventual success.

Adaptive question links and examples to explore:
