Introduction
Introduction

  • Computer-based test

    • Fixed response question types

      • E.g. multiple choice, multiple response, hotspot

    • Free response questions types

      • E.g. essay, programming, diagrammatic

    • Fixed set of questions for all students

      • Either too easy or too difficult


Introduction cont d
Introduction (cont’d)

  • Computerised-adaptive test

    • Questions of varying levels of difficulty to suit individual students’ ability

    • Drawback: ‘fairness’ of assessment

      • Thus, better as formative than as summative assessment


ASAM

  • Stands for “Adaptive Self Assessment Master”

  • An extension to CourseMarker (CM)

    • CM has the capability to mark programming and diagrammatic questions automatically and give immediate feedback


Asam cont d
ASAM (cont’d)

  • Customise the questions to individual students by generating a personalised set of self-assessing questions

  • Multi-modal questionnaires


Components of asam
Components of ASAM

  • Question bank

    • To store all the questions

  • Authoring tool

    • With which lecturers use to create questions and questionnaire skeletons

  • Student model

    • To store the profiles of individual students


Components of asam cont d
Components of ASAM (cont’d)

  • Assessment generating system

    • Which students are to log on to and to attempt the questions presented

  • Marking tool

    • To mark students’ submission and pass on the data to the student model



Evaluation
Evaluation

  • With 2003/4 first year Computer Science students

    • In the first part/semester of the module

  • Two self assessments (SAs)

    • of mainly fixed response questions

    • First SA (after 1st MCQ test): fixed format

    • Second SA (after 2nd MCQ test): adaptive format

Conclusion
Conclusion

  • Self assessment is generally beneficial to students, may it be fixed or adaptive

  • Adaptive self assessment adds value to their learning


Future work
Future work

  • Incorporate IMS QTI

  • Making ASAM to be interoperable with other question banks and intelligent tutoring systems
